Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 3:46 PM CST Feb. 23, 2018 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Paducah has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
Spencer County in southwestern Indiana...
southeastern Henderson County in northwestern Kentucky...
Daviess County in northwestern Kentucky...
Livingston County in western Kentucky...
Crittenden County in western Kentucky...
Caldwell County in western Kentucky...
McLean County in northwestern Kentucky...
Hopkins County in northwestern Kentucky...
southeastern Union County in northwestern Kentucky...
Webster County in northwestern Kentucky...
Lyon County in western Kentucky...

* until 400 am CST Saturday

* at 346 PM CST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that one to two inches of heavy rain fell since last night. This
rain has caused flooding of low-lying areas and lead to quite a
number of Road closures at this time.

Additional rainfall will be moving back into the warned area this
evening. Rainfall amounts up to one to two tenths of an inch can be
expected this evening, with another half to three quarters of an
inch expected after midnight. Although these amounts may seem low,
all of this rain will runoff into already flooded roadways and low-
lying areas.

Therefore, this overland Flood Warning will be continued through the
overnight hours, where nighttime flooding can be especially
dangerous for travelers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 12:01 PM CST Feb. 23, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Saturday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky,
and southeast Missouri.

* Through late Saturday night

* periods of showers and thunderstorms will produce another 1.5 to
3 inches of rainfall through Saturday night. Isolated higher
amounts will be possible. With our grounds well saturated from
all the recent rainfall, totaling 3 to 5 inches on average since
rains began Tuesday night, the result will be worsening flood
problems as well as an increasing potential for flash flooding.

* Additional rains will aggravate already ongoing flooding of area
rivers and tributaries across the region. Smaller streams and
creeks not currently in flood will fill up and overspill their
banks quickly, heightening the flood threat. In addition,
elevated water levels in low lying and poor drainage areas, as
well as waters that may not yet have receded from antecedent
rainfall, may lead to Road closures due to high water crossings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Heed all Flood Warning signs, and never cross a flooded roadway.
Turn around and don't drown! Remember it is harder to see rising
waters at night. Seek High Ground immediately if you encounter an
area with rising waters.
