* until 1015 am CST Thursday

* at 1010 am CST, emergency management reported flooding and Road
closures County-wide. Up to three inches of rain fell yesterday.
This in combination with a frozen ground will continue to lead to

Freeport, Lena, Pearl City, Cedarville, Davis, Dakota, German
Valley, Winslow, Rock City, Ridott, Buena Vista, Loran, Rock Grove,
Oneco, Orangeville, Kent, Eleroy, Damascus, Lake Le-Aqua-
Na State Park and MC Connell.

unstable and unsafe.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
