FLASH FLOOD WARNING
ISSUED: 9:19 PM OCT. 15, 2018 – NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
The National Weather Service in League City has issued a * Flash Flood Warning for... Western Trinity County in southeastern Texas... Central Grimes County in southeastern Texas... Northeastern Washington County in southeastern Texas... Southeastern Brazos County in southeastern Texas... Northwestern Montgomery County in southeastern Texas... South central Houston County in southeastern Texas... Southeastern Madison County in southeastern Texas... Western Walker County in southeastern Texas... * Until 1215 AM CDT. * At 915 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy rain across the warned area. 3 to 6 inches of rain have fallen and more showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop and move across the warned area. Much of the area has had periods of heavy rainfall since late Saturday. This ground is close to saturated in places and so additional rainfall will more quickly become runoff. Flooding is ongoing and may get worse with the additional rainfall. * Some locations that will experience flooding include... Northwestern Huntsville, Navasota, Bedias, Millican, Anderson, Crabbs Prairie, Roans Prairie and Carlos. 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.
