... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 1130 am CDT for Winnebago
and Boone counties...

* earlier this morning, emergency management had reported widespread
flooding across Winnebago and Boone counties, including in parts
of Rockford and Belvidere. Many roads were impassable, including
near Kent creek in Rockford. Other cities with some impassable
residential roads include Belvidere, Loves Park, Machesney Park,
and Pecatonica. There are several rural roads too that had been
reported flooded. While the rest of the morning is expected to
remain mainly dry, the water will be slow to subside and some
flooded roadways will be a concern during the Thursday morning
commute.

* Some locations that likely have flooding include...
South Beloit, Rockton, Roscoe, Poplar Grove, Cherry Valley,
Winnebago, Durand, Capron, Timberlane, Caledonia, Lake Summerset,
Davis Junction and new Millford.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
