...STRONG RISES ON TYGARTS CREEK AND THE LITTLE SANDY RIVER EARLY
THIS MORNING...

HEAVY RAIN OCCURRED EARLIER FRIDAY EVENING FROM OLIVE HILL TO NEAR
GRAYSON.  ONLY LINGERING LIGHT RAIN IS EXPECTED EARLY THIS
MORNING...THAT SHOULD NOT CAUSE ANY ADDITIONAL RISES IN STREAMS.

THE RUNOFF FROM THE EARLIER RAIN WILL CAUSE A STRONG RISE ON TYGARTS
CREEK...TO ITS MOUTH WITH THE OHIO RIVER NEAR SOUTH SHORE.  THIS
INCLUDES THE ROUTE 7 CORRIDOR IN GREENUP COUNTY NEAR SUCH COMMUNITIES
AS WARNOCK...LOAD...AND LYNN.  BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS AROUND ANY PRIVATE
LOW WATER CROSSINGS.  THE WATER MAY BE TOO DEEP AND SWIFT MOVING TO
CROSS SAFELY...ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.

FURTHER EAST...A SIGNIFICANT RISE WILL OCCUR ON THE LITTLE SANDY RIVER
FROM GRAYSON...DOWN ALONG THE ROUTE 1 CORRIDOR...TOWARD THE COMMUNITY OF
GREENUP.  THE RIVER SHOULD CREST WELL BELOW FLOOD STAGE IN GRAYSON BY DAWN...
BUT LATER ON INDEPENDENCE DAY IN GREENUP COUNTY.

BE CAREFUL AROUND THESE SWOLLEN WATER WAYS ON THIS 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY.
