THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PADUCAH HAS ISSUED AN

* URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY FOR...
  EASTERN HAMILTON COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS...
  WESTERN WHITE COUNTY IN SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS...

* UNTIL 1145 AM CDT.

* AT 849 AM CDT RAINFALL RATES OF 2 TO 3 INCHES AN HOUR HAVE BEEN
INDICATED ON RADAR THIS MORNING...AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST
MID MORNING. THIS AMOUNT OF RAINFALL WILL LIKELY RESULT IN MINOR
FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS AND RISES IN CREEKS AND STREAMS.

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.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER ON COUNTRY ROADS AND
FARMLAND ALONG THE BANKS OF CREEKS AND STREAMS.

A FLOOD ADVISORY MEANS RIVER OR STREAM FLOWS ARE ELEVATED OR PONDING
OF WATER IN URBAN OR OTHER AREAS IS OCCURRING OR IS IMMINENT.
