* until 200 am CDT/300 am EDT/

thunderstorms producing heavy rain across portions of the advisory
area. Thunderstorms will likely train across the Fairbury...
Crescent City... Watseka and Kentland areas through 11 PM CDT. One
to two inches of rainfall are possible with the heaviest storms.
This will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding... and overflowing
poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding in the advisory

Otterbein... Morocco... Piper City... Stockland... Hanging Grove... Beaver

Wadena... Freeland Park and McCoysburg.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
