...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1115 PM EDT FOR
HOLMES COUNTY...

At 951 PM EDT, local law enforcement reported flooding across
portions of Holmes County.  The worst of the flooding appears to be
north of Millersburg into the Holmesville area.  Little additional
rainfall is expected but it will take some time for flood waters to
recede.  Several roads remain closed and at least one vehicle has
already been swept off the road by flood waters.  Over 3.5 inches of
rain was measured in the area. Area streams and creeks...including
Killbuck Creek will likely continue to rise for a few more hours
before beginning to subside.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Millersburg, Berlin, Walnut Creek, Sugarcreek, Killbuck, Holmesville,
Winesburg, Farmerstown, Baltic, Mount Hope and Charm.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
