...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 130 AM CDT THURSDAY FOR
MARION COUNTY...

AT 356 PM CDT...EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT REPORTS THAT SEVERAL SECONDARY
ROADS REMAIN FLOODED AND CLOSED WITHIN THE COUNTY. BE SURE TO HEED
ANY ROAD CLOSURES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
