...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 130 AM CDT THURSDAY FOR
WARREN...MARION AND MADISON COUNTIES...

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTED THAT FLOOD WATERS
WERE STILL IMPACTING PORTIONS OF THE WARNED AREA...ESPECIALLY IN
MADISON AND MARION COUNTIES.

IN MADISON COUNTY...SEVERAL SECONDARY ROADS REMAIN CLOSED WITH WATER
FLOWING OVER THEM. ONE PRIMARY ROAD REMAINED CLOSED...CUMMING ROAD
BETWEEN 155TH STREET AND BADGER CREEK ROAD.

IN MARION COUNTY...SEVERAL SECONDARY ROADS ALSO REMAIN CLOSED WITH
WATER FLOWING OVER THEM. IN ADDITION...ONE PRIMARY ROAD REMAINED
CLOSED...IOWA HIGHWAY 92 WEST OF PLEASANTVILLE.

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.
