not always obvious. As little as two feet of water will carry most
cars away. Also, the road bed may be washed out under the water, and
you could be stranded or trapped.
Interests along the Tennessee River should remain alert to rapidly
changing river conditions, and stay tuned for later forecast updates
from the Tennessee Valley Authority and the National Weather Service
forecast office in Huntsville.
