Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 12:06 PM CDT Jun. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect until 5 PM CDT this
afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, and western
Kentucky, including the following areas, in southern Illinois,
Hardin, Massac, and Pope. In southwest Indiana, Gibson, Pike,
Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Warrick. In western Kentucky,
Ballard, Caldwell, Calloway, Carlisle, Christian, Crittenden,
Daviess, Fulton, Graves, Henderson, Hickman, Hopkins,
Livingston, Lyon, Marshall, McCracken, McLean, Muhlenberg,
Todd, Trigg, Union KY, and Webster.

* Until 5 PM CDT this afternoon

* widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to
produce locally heavy rainfall today. Tropical downpours have
been dumping up to 2 inches per hour in isolated locations in
southern Illinois. Due to the more rapid speed of the storm, the
watch is only in effect through the afternoon hours.

* High rainfall rates could lead to rapid inundation of flood
prone roadways. Sharp rises in creeks and small streams may
occur. Low lying areas may quickly become flooded.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings or flood advisories be issued.
