Flash Flooding Likely

Through midnight last night we have received nearly 5″ of rainfall since last Friday, and that number is surely to rise when totals come in from the heavy downpours that tracked through the area this morning. A flash flood warning is in effect until 4:30pm for Winnebago and Boone County. We have already been updated to many flooded areas, and flooding along rivers will continue to be a concern even well after the showers and storms clear out. Many rivers are expected to crest between Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon. If you live near a low-lying area be mindful that just because you aren’t flooded now doesn’t mean you won’t experience flooding within the next few days. If you encounter a flooded area, avoid that area all together. Attempting to walk or even drive in flood water can be extrememly dangerous! Stay tuned for updates! -GregCapture
