The National Weather Service in Jackson has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
Carroll County in north central Mississippi...
Grenada County in north central Mississippi...
Leflore County in north central Mississippi...
Montgomery County in north central Mississippi...

* Until 1115 AM CST Saturday.

* Over the past several days widespread rainfall amounts from eight
to eleven inches of rain have fallen over the area. Periods of
heavy rain from last night and yesterday have caused flash
flooding. In addition, many rivers and streams are high and may
lead to additional flooding of homes and roadways.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Greenwood, Grenada, Winona, Itta Bena, Black Hawk, Leflore,
Jefferson, Vaiden, Duck Hill, Kilmichael, Sidon, North Carrollton,
Gore Springs, Teoc, Malmaison, Minter City, Avalon, Quito, Lodi and
Poplar Creek.

Additional rainfall amounts up to an inch are possible through the
early morning hours as scattered showers and embedded thunderstorms
periodically redevelop over the warned area. Additional, heavier,
thunderstorms are possible Saturday afternoon that will bring
potential for another quick inch or two of rainfall to isolated
locations. Any further heavy rainfall will only worsen the high
water situation and numerous roads are already flooded or closed.
Standing water will continue across the warned area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
