MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Rain continues to pummel the Mid-South Sunday, creating a big risk for flooding.
The area around the Mississippi River is under a Flood Warning.
Other areas in the Mid-South were under Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, Flash Flood Warnings or Tornado Watches earlier in the day.
The National Weather Service expected a risk of 60 mph winds, possible penny-sized hail and some storm damage in those areas.
Just outside our viewing area in Jonesboro, people had to be evacuated from their homes due to floods.
Nearby in Mississippi County, part of Highway 158 is underwater.

Turn around, don’t drown if you’re driving and come across a flooded road!
