Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 5:37 AM EST on February 23, 2019

Expires 11:30 AM EST on February 23, 2019


... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 1130 am EST Saturday for
south central Macon County...

At 528 am EST, Doppler radar indicated mainly lingering light rain
falling from time to time across Macon County. The river gauge along
the little Tennessee River near Otto was reporting a value of 16.48
feet and slowly falling. This remains well above the action stage of
11 feet, but slightly below the minor flood stage of 17 feet. At
this level, the park near the river gauge will remain flooded and
water may be near the level of Riverside Road. In addition,
widespread flooding of farm fields near the river will continue
today.

For now, the warning will be left in place through 1130 am since
since additional modest rises will be possible with any rain showers
this morning. Additional advisories or warnings could be needed
later today through tonight as rain showers redevelop from the west.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, as well as farmland, drainages,
and other low-lying areas.

Please pay close attention to Road signs indicating a flood-prone
area. Obey all barricades, even if water is not currently over the
Road. Barricades are in place for your protection and indicate areas
where flooding can occur rapidly and without warning, or where the
Road surface may be damaged.
