...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 600 PM CDT FOR
NORTHEASTERN HEMPSTEAD...HOWARD AND CENTRAL NEVADA COUNTIES...

At 420 PM CDT, emergency management and local law enforcement reported
flash flooding across much of Howard, Northern Hempstead, and Northern
Nevada Counties.  Widespread rainfall amounts of five to in excess of
ten inches have fallen since early this morning. Although the rain has
ended across the warned area, flash flooding continues with numerous
roads flooded and closed, or washed out. The water is beginning to
slowly recede at this time, but travel is not recommended this afternoon
until the water is able to recede further.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Nashville, Prescott, Mineral Springs, Dierks, Umpire, Emmet, Blevins,
Tollette, Bluff City, Corinth, Athens, Center Point, White Oak Lake
State Park, McCaskill, Ozan, Cale, Boughton, Muddy Fork, Burg and
Morris.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
