THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN JACKSON HAS ISSUED A

* FLOOD WARNING FOR URBAN AREAS AND SMALL STREAMS IN...
  MADISON PARISH IN NORTHEAST LOUISIANA...
  THIS INCLUDES THE CITY OF TALLULAH...
  ISSAQUENA COUNTY IN WEST CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI...
  THIS INCLUDES THE CITY OF VALLEY PARK...
  WARREN COUNTY IN WEST CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI...
  THIS INCLUDES THE CITY OF REDWOOD...

* UNTIL 215 AM CDT

* AT 815 PM CDT STANDING WATER CONTINUES ON PARISH AND COUNTY ROADS
ACROSS THE AFFECTED AREA AS REPORTED BY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND
VARIOUS LAW ENFORCEMENT ENTITIES. WATER WILL SLOWLY RUN OFF OVER
THE COURSE OF THE LATE EVENING TO EARLY MORNING HOURS WITH LITTLE TO
NO NEW RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS EXPECTED DURING THAT TIME FRAME.

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
HOWEVER...ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
IMMEDIATELY.

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.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODING. IF FLOODING IS OBSERVED ACT QUICKLY. MOVE UP TO
HIGHER GROUND TO ESCAPE FLOOD WATERS. DO NOT STAY IN AREAS SUBJECT TO
FLOODING WHEN WATER BEGINS RISING.
