Flash Flood Watch, Flood Warning Amite River Bayou Manchac, East Baton Rouge Parish and Denham Springs. Rain storm totals are forecasted to be 2.0' - 5.0" inches. There is a chance that some areas would receive more rain. Be alert for quick rises in river levels. Updated river stages remain below flood stage but river crests are forecasted to be above flood stage. As run off from storms reach rivers levels will rise with additional rainfall expected stay alert to changes in flood levels.

Runoff on streets will cause flooding especially in poorly drained areas. Never drive over roads covered in water. Just stop turn around and use an alternate route. Below I have posted a link that is updated hourly for the latest rivers stages.
