The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
Ascension Parish in southeast Louisiana...
this includes the city of Donaldsonville...
Assumption Parish in southeast Louisiana...
this includes the city of Napoleonville...
Iberville Parish in southeast Louisiana...
this includes the city of Plaquemine...
St. James Parish in southeast Louisiana...

* until 545 PM CDT

* at 348 PM CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
flash flooding from persistent thunderstorms extending from near
Bayou Sorrel to just southeast of Donaldsonville. Radar indicates
that over 3 inches of rain has occurred near Donaldsonville this
afternoon.

* Locations in the warning include but are not limited to White
Castle... Carville and Bayou Sorrel

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Additional rainfall amounts of two inches are possible in the warned
area.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... highways and underpasses. Additionally... land
along the banks of creeks... streams and other low lying areas are
subject to flooding.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
