...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1130 PM CDT FOR
MENARD...SOUTHWESTERN FULTON...CASS...SCHUYLER AND MASON COUNTIES...

At 722 PM CDT, local law enforcement reported flash flooding in Cass
County. A portion of Ashland Road has been washed out south of
Route 125 near the Sangamon County line. Periods of light to
moderate rain tonight will cause continued flash flooding issues.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.
