National Weather Service issues flash flood watch

Up to 3-inches is expected on the most southern part of Butler County, but the majority of everyone else will likely receive around 2-inches according to the US National Weather Service. Five people in that Appalachian town of 1,500 died in the disaster that piled up water, mud and debris in homes, businesses and streets. The greater risk of severe weather is in the highlighted area in OH and Kentucky.

Take all warnings seriously - Take flood warnings seriously, and even flash flood warnings more seriously.

As the remnants of tropical depression Cindy move slowly up the Mississippi River, creeks and streams are reaching bankful in many locations.

Heavy rainfall associated with remnants of the storm caused scattered street flooding across central and southern IN on Friday. Temperatures will be a bit cooler than what we saw on Friday, highs hit the upper 70s to 80°. No injuries were reported. Cindy also caused widespread coastal highway and street flooding and several short-lived tornadoes, but no other deaths. The National Weather Service said an EF-2 twister with winds up to 120 miles per hour (190 kph) struck just outside Birmingham on Thursday.

Still, the storm barely registered a blip for some in Memphis.

Monitor local news media and official NWS outlets to know what is happening.
