northern Vermilion County. Widespread rainfall amounts of two to as
much as 3 inches of rain fell in under 30 minutes with severe
thunderstorms this evening which also produced large amounts of
hail. Flash flooding is already occurring, and deep hail drifts will
worsen the effects of flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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