...RAINFALL MAY CAUSE DRAINAGE CONCERNS THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING IN THE TRI-STATE AREA...

COMBINED RADAR ESTIMATES FROM NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND DEFENSE
DEPARTMENT RADAR SITES INDICATED THAT ONE HALF TO ONE INCH OF
RAINFALL HAS FALLEN ALREADY ACROSS SOUTHWEST INDIANA, NORTHWEST
KENTUCKY, AND SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS.

SHORTLY BEFORE 3 PM CST, SOME OF THE RAIN WAS CAUSING MINOR
DRAINAGE PROBLEMS AND PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS IN THE ANGEL
MOUNDS AREA OF THE EVANSVILLE INDIANA METROPOLITAN REGION.

WITH LEAVES AND OTHER LOOSE OBJECTS HAVING FALLEN INTO DRAINAGE
DITCHES AND STORM DRAINS IN RECENT DAYS AND WEEKS, THIS MAY CAUSE
SOME BACKUP OF WATER INTO LOW LYING AND POORLY DRAINED LOCATIONS.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRY TO CLEAR THESE OBSTRUCTIONS AT THIS TIME,
ESPECIALLY SINCE IT COULD PUT YOUR SAFETY AT RISK.

LOOK FOR THE RAIN TO CONTINUE TO PERSIST THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS
BEFORE TAPERING OFF. AN ADDITIONAL ONE HALF TO LOCALLY THREE
QUARTERS OF AN INCH OF RAIN CAN BE EXPECTED BEFORE ENDING
OVERNIGHT.

AVOID AREAS WHERE WATER COVERS THE ROAD AND STAY OUT OF DITCHES,
CREEKS, AND STREAMS THAT MAY BE OVERFLOWING WITH WATER.
