...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 900 PM CDT FOR EASTERN
FRANKLIN COUNTY...

As of 530 PM CDT Tuesday, automated stream gauge data continued to
suggest that minor flooding likely continued within the warning
area, but was likely in the process of slow, continued improvement
since a widespread 3 to 5 inches fell yesterday and last night.

As of 5 PM CDT, a gauge along the Thompson Creek near Riverton
reported a stage of 9.9 feet, which was slightly below minor flood
stage of 10.5 feet, and had exhibited a general falling trend since
the morning hours.

Given the possibility of continued minor flooding along the Thompson
Creek near Riverton, and perhaps in other rural portions of northern
and eastern Franklin County, the Flood Warning will continue at this
time.

This warning includes, but is not limited to, the following streams
and drainages...Thompson Creek...Middle Branch Thompson Creek...East
Branch Thompson Creek...West Branch Thompson Creek.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

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