the warned area. Several issues on area roadways continue from the
recent heavy rainfall. Several inches of rain have fallen recently
over the warned area . Even though the rainfall is over, the local
creeks and streams will remain elevated across the warned area and
some low lying roads could still be flooded this morning.

Knoxville, Johnson City, Kingsport, Oak Ridge, Morristown,
Maryville, Bristol TN, Bristol VA, Greeneville, Sevierville,

City, La Follette, Newport, Erwin and Rogersville.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and 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.
