||Flooded roads across North Mississippi
NEW ALBANY, Miss. — North Mississippi drivers are told to steer clear of flooded roads as the area experiences excessive rainfall this Fourth of July weekend.
The Union County Emergency Management Agency says the Tallahatchie River has burst its bank and about 25 to 30 county roads are completely impassable.
Director Curt Clayton says about every creek in the county has overflown and there is water in several buildings.
In Pontotoc County, the sheriff's department says culverts have washed out on a few roads, including Black Zion and Moorman Road. They are currently closed.
Drivers are reminded to follow the simple rule when they come across flooded areas: "Turn around, don't drown."
