Original Blog (Why The Flash Flood Warning):
A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for northern Milam and Robertson counties until 9:45 a.m., Tuesday morning. Flash flooding can be tricky as heavy rain can result in rapidly rising waters that can be difficult to pinpoint ahead of time. There are often locations around the region that may be at risk for brief flooding, regardless of warnings.
Doppler estimated rainfall totals are approaching six inches in northern Milam and Robertson counties, extending northwestward into Falls county. As the rain continues to fall in the same locations, creeks, streams and small roads can quickly flood.
Remember, it doesn't take much water to make you loose control of your vehicle, regardless of how deep it may or may not look. If you're not sure how deep flooding may be, remember turn around, don't drown.
