The National Weather Service in North Webster is advising that heavy rain is forecast to move in late Wednesday, with a Slight Risk (level 2/4) for excessive rainfall/flooding across all of Marshall County. Rain totals will be 1 to 2 inches, with the highest totals north of U.S. 6.

Marshall County residents may see flooding in low-lying areas that are susceptible to flooding during heavy rain events. Some ditches and creeks may see an increase in water levels. Ponding on road surfaces could cause hazardous driving conditions.

People living in flood-prone locations should move their vulnerable property to higher ground, closely monitor the forecast and be prepared to implement their family emergency plan.  While driving, be alert to water ponding on top of or near the edge of roads that may be difficult to see especially at night. Never drive through high water.  Turn around and find a safer route.
