Weather alert

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a flash flood warning for Logan, DeWitt and McLean counties in central Illinois until 3 p.m.

At 9:10 a.m. National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated heavy rains continuing along Interstate 55 between Bloomington and Lincoln. Five to 6 inches of rain has been estimated since 4 a.m.

Thunderstorms with excessive rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour will continue through noon. These rainfall rates will likely produce flash flooding.

Excessive rainfall will cause flooding near streams, creeks and nearby farmland. Be especially cautious on county roads and in low-lying areas. Never cross areas in which water covers the roads.

Most deaths in flash flooding occur in automobiles. Do not drive your vehicle into areas in which water covers the roadway. It takes only a foot or two of water to wash most vehicles away. Vehicles caught in rising waters should be abandoned quickly.

Report flash flooding to your local ESDA or the nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the National Weather Service.
