WPC: ‘Significant Flooding and Flash Flooding’ continues in Alabama and Tennessee

The last of the heavy rain moved through North Alabama Saturday night leading to a brighter day on Sunday. While the severe weather threat is over, the flooding threat is not; steadily rising rivers could cause more flooding through Sunday.

The Shoals (Florence, Muscle Shoals, and Sheffield in particular) had some serious flooding in progress Saturday night, and Fayetteville, Tennessee has called for evacuations of people living near the Elk River.
