Flooding

Flooding should always be one of your concerns while driving in heavy rain. Tuscaloosa was affected by heavy rain for the past few days that caused flooding in certain areas including 15th Street, Second Avenue, 35th Street, and west of Exchange Avenue.

Areas in Tuscaloosa that are affected by heavy rain should be avoided for your safety.

“There are several streets in the city limits of Tuscaloosa that are under construction so therefore when there is a heavy down flow of rain they may flood,” said Tuscaloosa Police Lt. Teena Richardson. “Any time you see an area is heavy flooded we ask you to use caution or the best thing to do if possible to detour take another route.”
