Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 12:09 PM CDT Jul. 28, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 300 PM CDT for
western Madison... southeastern Lauderdale... Limestone... Morgan and
eastern Lawrence counties...

At 1205 PM CDT, emergency management reported several streets
flooded and barricaded in the city of Decatur along 6th Avenue.
Radar estimates and rain gage reports of 2 to 3 inches of rain fell
rather quickly in these areas to cause flash flooding earlier in the
day.

Though one round of heavy rainfall is moving to the southeast of
Limestone, Morgan, Lawrence, and Madison counties, more moderate to
heavy rainfall is developing to the northwest and will arrive in
these locations over the next few hours. As such, what flooding has
possibly subsided for now will likely be exacerbated with this round
of heavy rainfall later today.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
northwestern Huntsville, Decatur, Madison, Athens, Hartselle,
Moulton, Redstone Arsenal, Priceville, Trinity and Falkville.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
