Worsening Flood Threat

In addition to tornadoes, there is a serious threat of flooding overnight.
Green are flood watches. Maroon is a flash flood warning meaning flooding is occurring or imminent. Amber are severe thunderstorm warnings. Yellow are tornado watches.

Remember: Turn around, don't drown. The leading cause of deaths in flash flooding is perfectly safe people driving into flooded areas.
The above video, which is just seconds long, demonstrates how very quickly you can go from being perfectly safe to mortal danger by driving into what looks like shallow water. Fortunately, Chris survived.
