Flash Flood Watch: One County Gets Nine Inches, Rain to Move Out Tuesday

LINCOLN COUNTY, Miss.–A flash flood watch was issued Monday morning for a good chunk of Mississippi, mostly from the south Delta to the coast. The system that brought heavy rain to Mississippi Sunday and Monday morning was expected to finally move out Tuesday.

The flash flood watch includes Humphreys, Issaquena, Sharkey, Yazoo, Warren, Hinds, Rankin, Claiborne, Copiah, Simpson, Smith, Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln, Lawrence, Jefferson Davis, Covington, Jones, Marion, Lamar, Forrest, and included a coastal flood warning for the coastal counties.

“We’ve got a pretty potent storms system,” said Greg Garrett with the National Weather Service. “I think we’ve had at least estimated by radar, in Lincoln County, upwards of nine inches since this rain started.”

Garrett said the bulk of the rain was expected to push into Alabama by Monday afternoon.

“We’ll still have showers around going into Tuesday ubntil the system can move out.”

There was also a tornado watch for the extreme southern counties. That was set to expire at 9 a.m. Monday.
