...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 415 AM EDT FOR
SOUTHERN UNION COUNTY...

At 216 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated two to four inches of rain
have fallen since 9 PM EDT. Flash flooding is expected to be
ongoing. Areas that received the heaviest rain include the city of
Monroe and areas south and west. Some of the streams that may be
flooding or still running high include...
Beaverdam...Richardson...Waxhaw...and Twelvemile Creeks.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few
inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is
not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON`T DROWN.

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

When it is safe to do so, please report flood waters or landslides
flowing over roads or threatening property to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free, 1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, by posting on
our Facebook page, or via Twitter using hashtag NWSGSP. Your message
should describe the event and the specific location where it
occurred, including roadways, nearby cross streets, stream names and
other landmarks.
