Illinois, Perry

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 1:46 PM CST on February 24, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana
and western Kentucky.

* Through late tonight

* showers will be increasing in scope and coverage as we head into
the night time hours. Thunderstorms will bring the potential for
intense heavy rains locally. Another 1 to 2 inches on average is
expected, but locally higher amounts are possible. This will be
falling on already well saturated grounds, many of which are
already in or nearly flooded. These additional rains will
continue to pose a flood hazard, including the potential for
flash flooding where thunderstorms hit.

* These additional rains will aggravate already ongoing flooding
of area rivers and tributaries across the region. Smaller
streams and creeks not currently in flood will fill up and
overspill their banks quickly, heightening the flood threat. In
addition, elevated water levels in low lying and poor drainage
areas, as well as waters that may not yet have receded from
antecedent rainfall, may lead to more Road closures due to high
water crossings. Thunderstorms, producing locally higher
rainfall amounts, could pose a flash flooding risk as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Heed all Flood Warning signs, and never cross a flooded roadway.
Turn around and don't drown! Remember it is harder to see rising
waters at night. Seek High Ground immediately if you encounter an
area with rising waters.
