The advisory warned people to stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low-lying areas prone to flooding.
“Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action,” the advisory said. “Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle, or on foot. Turn around, don’t drown.”
The flood advisory may be extended beyond 11:30 a.m. if heavy rain continues.
