“For the public that is out in this or any other heavy rain, just remember that it doesn’t take but a few inches of flowing water to cause a vehicle to become unstable,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. “If you do come to an area that’s flooded, the best thing to do is turn around.”

A pattern of rainy weather is anticipated to continue through next Tuesday.
