... The Flood Warning remains in effect until 800 am CDT for southern
Ellsworth and Rice counties...

At 320 am CDT... local law enforcement officials reported that
excessive rainfall was producing flooding across the warned area.

At 316 am CDT... emergency manager reported low water crossings and
other flooded roads across the northern portion of Rice County due
to the heavy rainfall.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... country roads... as well as farmland along the
banks of creeks and streams.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It only takes a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
