Flood forecasts are coming in from the National Weather Service for our area from yesterday's deluge.
The forecasts for area rivers and creeks are listed below with the flood stage, the time at which the water is expected to reach its peak height and what that crest level will be.
Most flood deaths occur in automobiles, according to the National Weather Service which advises: Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear and just one foot of flowing water is enough to sweep vehicles off the road.
