Flash flooding causes problems throughout the area

10 Jun

Heavy rain Tuesday afternoon caused flash flooding across Warren, St. Charles and St. Louis counties.

A flash flood is caused when water rises rapidly in low-lying areas. The National Weather Service advises pedestrians and drives to “turn around, don’t drown” — people often underestimate the water’s depth and current.

O’Fallon, Mo., and St. Paul were hardest hit by flash flooding Tuesday.
