...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 445 PM CDT FOR
NORTHWESTERN KNOX COUNTY...

At 327 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated additional showers and
thunderstorms moving into the warned area.  Radar suggests 2 to 3
inches of rain has already fallen from just north of Galesburg to
Henderson...so this additional rain may lead to renewed flash
flooding.  A trained spotter reported water flowing across a road in
the Lincoln Park area about 3 miles north of Galesburg at around 230
PM CDT.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Galesburg, Wataga, Oneida, Altona, Rio, Henderson and Galesburg
Airport.

This includes Interstate 74 between mile markers 34 and 46.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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