RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Three to four inches of rain have fallen in parts of Franklin County, Alabama this morning. That’s led to flash flooding in small creeks and streams, and we understand there are several flooded homes.
Russellville Police urge drivers to use caution, because many streets are flooded. Do not drive around barricades.
Shortly before 12 p.m. the National Weather Service reported the heaviest rainfall had shifted south of the Russellville area, but runoff from the rains will continue for the next hour or two causing more flash flooding in small creeks and streams.
