* Flood Warning for…
Southwestern Madison County in north central Alabama…

* Until 330 PM CST.

* At 932 AM CST, Doppler radar and several surrounding rain gages
measured around one to two inches of rainfall that occurred in
portions of Western Madison county last night. Due to already

filling ditches, small creeks and streams, and other tributaries
that feed into Indian Creek. The creek is expected to rise above
Flood Stage of 7.5 feet later this morning, and will crest and
then fall back below Flood Stage late this afternoon. Minor
flooding will occur along the Indian Creek Greenway during this
time, so please use caution from Providence southward to
Interstate 565.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include…
Northwestern Huntsville, Madison, Redstone Arsenal, Triana,
Marshall Space Flight Center and Harvest.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
