Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 8:52 PM CDT Jul. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
northwestern Ogle County in north central Illinois...
southwestern Winnebago County in north central Illinois...

* until 1145 PM CDT

* at 850 PM CDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding in
the advisory area. Up to two inches of rain have already fallen.
Rain should diminish quickly as thunderstorms move off to the east
shortly. However... areas from Forreston... to Leaf River and Byron
will continue to see some minor flooding from the quick one to two
inches of rain.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Mount Morris... Byron... Forreston... Stillman Valley... Leaf River and
Adeline.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
