    Expires: February 28, 2021 @ 12:00pm
    A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
    Flood Watch to include portions of southern Illinois...southwest Indiana and southeast Missouri, including the following areas, in southern Illinois, Alexander, Franklin, Hamilton, Jackson, Johnson, Pulaski, Saline, Union, White and Williamson. In southwest Indiana, Gibson and Pike. In southeast Missouri, Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Perry MO, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard and Wayne MO.
    From this evening through Sunday morning
    A consistent signal for locally heavy rain is forecast, especially Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Storm total average rainfall is forecast to be up to 2 inches in the Watch area and, with thunderstorms forecast, localized higher totals to 3 inches or more are possible. This amount of cumulative rainfall will be falling on recently soaked grounds from melted snowfall, so the ability to soak in all this expected rainfall will be compromised and likely to cause flood issues.

A Whitney McKenzie Memorial 5k Run/Walk will be held this Saturday morning using the same route as the Annual Candy Corn Run. This will be for fun only- not competitive.


The run will start at the First Christian Church in Carmi at 9 am this Saturday(Jan 16th) and participants may do the course at their own pace.


Proceeds from the Run/Walk will be used to help Whitney’s parents, Jeff and Cindy, with funeral expenses. Participants who feel led are asked to give a $20 donation that will be collected at the church parking lot. There will be a box for the donations under the awning at the front door of the church.


If you can’t make it Saturday but still want to give, contact Mitch Gross and he will make arrangements. Donations of any size will be accepted and greatly appreciated.


Please follow the COVID-19  guidelines for social distancing.
