Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 3:28 PM CST on February 23, 2018

Expires 7:30 PM EST on February 23, 2018


The National Weather Service in Paducah has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
Pulaski County in southern Illinois...
Massac County in southern Illinois...
southern Pope County in southern Illinois...
Alexander County in southern Illinois...
Fulton County in western Kentucky...
northwestern Calloway County in western Kentucky...
Marshall County in western Kentucky...
Hickman County in western Kentucky...
Carlisle County in western Kentucky...
McCracken County in western Kentucky...
Ballard County in western Kentucky...
Graves County in western Kentucky...

* until 630 PM CST

* at 324 PM CST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that one to two and a half inches of heavy rain fell since last
night. This rain has caused flooding of low-lying areas and led to
some Road closures at this time.

Additional rainfall will be moving back into the warned area this
evening. Rainfall amounts up to one quarter of an inch can be
expected this evening, with another half to three quarters of an
inch expected after midnight. Although these amounts may seem low,
all of this rain will runoff into already flooded roadways and low-
lying areas.

Therefore, this overland Flood Warning will be continued through the
overnight hours, where nighttime flooding can be especially
dangerous for travelers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 12:01 PM CST on February 23, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Saturday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky,
and southeast Missouri.

* Through late Saturday night

* periods of showers and thunderstorms will produce another 1.5 to
3 inches of rainfall through Saturday night. Isolated higher
amounts will be possible. With our grounds well saturated from
all the recent rainfall, totaling 3 to 5 inches on average since
rains began Tuesday night, the result will be worsening flood
problems as well as an increasing potential for flash flooding.

* Additional rains will aggravate already ongoing flooding of area
rivers and tributaries across the region. Smaller streams and
creeks not currently in flood will fill up and overspill their
banks quickly, heightening the flood threat. In addition,
elevated water levels in low lying and poor drainage areas, as
well as waters that may not yet have receded from antecedent
rainfall, may lead to Road closures due to high water crossings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Heed all Flood Warning signs, and never cross a flooded roadway.
Turn around and don't drown! Remember it is harder to see rising
waters at night. Seek High Ground immediately if you encounter an
area with rising waters.
