...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 400 AM CDT THURSDAY FOR
ADAMS COUNTY...

AT 1052 AM CDT...EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT REPORTED THAT FLOODING ACROSS
THE WARNED AREA CONTINUES. NUMEROUS SECONDARY ROADS ACROSS THE
COUNTY REMAIN CLOSED WITH WATER FLOWING OVER THEM.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
CORNING...LENOX...LAKE ICARIA...PRESCOTT...NODAWAY...KENT...CARBON...
LAKE ICARIA STATE PARK AND CORNING MUNICIPAL AIRPORT.

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.
