El Dorado News-Times - - Obituaries - By the News-Times staff

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice has is­sued a flash flood warn­ing for much of the re­gion, in­clud­ing Union County, ef­fec­tive from noon to­day through late Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Ac­cord­ing to the weather ser­vice, wide­spread rain, which may be heavy at times, is ex­pected through­out Fri­day and Satur­day as a strong low pres­sure sys­tem ap­proaches the area.

The rain­fall is ex­pected to to­tal 3 to 5 inches, though iso­lated higher amounts are pos­si­ble.

Any time there is a pos­si­bil­ity of flash flood­ing, area res­i­dents should avoid any low-ly­ing and poor drainage ar­eas, if pos­si­ble.

The weather ser­vice is­sued the watch, which means that con­di­tions could lead to flash flood­ing.

In that case, the weather ser­vice will is­sue a flash flood warn­ing.
