Lincoln County in east central Missouri...
Macoupin County in southwest Illinois...
northern Jersey County in southwest Illinois...
northwestern Montgomery County in south central Illinois...

* at 843 am CDT... local law enforcement officials reported
flooding occurring across the advisory area. Sheriff's departments
across the advisory area are reporting numerous Road closures in
primarily in poor drainage areas that are normally susceptible to
flooding. Additional heavy rainfall will be moving into the area
today so flooding is expected to continue and possibly worsen.

* Some locations that will experience minor flooding include...
Carlinville... Elsberry... Jerseyville... Troy... Carrollton... Davis...
Farmersville... Girard... Greenfield... Hardin... Kemper... Moscow
Mills... Old Kane... Raymond... Shipman... White Oak and Winfield.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A small stream Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are
elevated or ponding of water is occurring or is imminent.

Excessive runoff from this storm will cause minor flooding of small
creeks and streams... country roads... as well as farmland along the
banks of creeks and streams.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Do not attempt to cross
bridges... dips... or other low spots if water covers the roadway.
Never try to cross a flowing stream... even a small one... on foot or
in a vehicle.

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.
Remember... turn around... don't drown.
