Thursday’s rain fell steadily through the afternoon, with rain totals between 1 to 2 inches in some areas.
The National Weather Service said residual runoff may persist through the late evening.
The heavy rainfall may cause streams and creeks to go out of their banks and cause flooding of low-lying, urban and poor drainage areas. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action in case of flooding.
Some area roads are closed due to flooding.
