Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 6:50 PM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
Crawford County in east central Illinois...
Clark County in east central Illinois...

* until 1245 am CDT

* at 649 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain moving into the warned area. The ground is already
saturated from previous heavy rainfall. Flash flooding is expected
to begin shortly.

This includes Interstate 70 between mile markers 127 and 154.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.
