4 PM UPDATE - Although rain has been heavy in the greater Steer Creek-Stumptown area, Steer Creek is up but little flooding.

A flash flood warning has also been issued for Roane County.

Heavy rain continues to fall across the warned area. Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to occur. Some locations that may experience flooding include Stumptown and Cedar Creek State Park.

A flash flooding warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. If you are in the warning area move to higher ground immediately.

Do not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth by foot or by automobile.

A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for the entire region through Wednesday evening.
