... Quad state residents and travelers urged to avoid flooded areas...

Although the rain is gone and the over land flood warnings from
the National Weather Service in Paducah have been lifted, you
strongly urged to stay away from flooded roadways and low lying
areas the next few days.

Many Highway and emergency management crews have placed Road closure
signs up across many of the flooded roadways across the region.
Several roads across the area have been seriously damaged due to
the excessive rainfall this past week.

Please do not attempt to travel around these signs or barricades.
They have been put up for your safety! You are placing yourself
and those who may have to Rescue you in serious danger, if you
disregard the signs and barricades associated with flooded areas.

Due to the widespread river flooding on the Ohio River and its
tributaries, as well as some locations on the Mississippi River,
many smaller creeks and streams feeding into these rivers will not
drain for several hours and possibly up to a week.

Keep small children and pets away from swollen waterways and fast
moving waters as the water slowly recedes.

Be especially cautious while traveling at night, since it may be more
difficult to see the dangers of flooded roads in time.

If find yourself approaching a flooded roadway, please "turn
around, don't drown".
