...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 100 AM CDT FOR
EAST CENTRAL WILL...SOUTHEASTERN COOK AND NORTHWESTERN LAKE
COUNTIES...

At 1012 PM CDT, Doppler radar estimated that up to two to two and a
half inches of rain have fallen in portions of the warned area from
far southeast Cook County and far eastern Will County into northwest
Lake County Indiana. The heaviest rain has ended, but flash flooding
is likely occurring due to runoff from the rain that fell.

Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...
Hammond, Gary, Calumet City, Chicago Heights, East Chicago,
Schererville, Lansing, Highland, Blue Island, Munster, Dolton, Park
Forest, Griffith, St. John, Steger, Flossmoor, Glenwood, University
Park, Posen and Whiting.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flash flooding of
small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and
underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

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.
