Episode Narrative A slow moving area of thunderstorms brought considerable flash flooding to several counties in central and southeast Alabama. A relatively narrow but rather long swath of rainfall of 3 to more than 7 inches stretched from northeastern Autauga County, across the city of Montgomery, and into southern Russell and northern Barbour Counties. Peak rainfall amounts approached 10 inches.
Event Narrative Flash flooding caused numerous roads to become impassable. High water was reported on several city and county roads, in and around the city of Tuskegee.
