ROADS FLOODED, RIVERS RISING ACROSS DEEP SOUTH
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Roads are flooding and rivers are rising across the Deep South after a day of heavy rains.
The National Weather Service says minor to moderate flooding is expected from central Mississippi to north Georgia following downpours.
Multiple roads are covered with water or washed out because of rainfall totals forecasters say could reach 6 inches.
And schools are opening late or closed in Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday because of the storms.
In eastern Mississippi, officials in Starkville say a county lake where the dam was at risk of failing last month has once again reached critical levels.
