Motorists across Cullman County are being urged to use caution following a weekend of heavy rains and flooding.
Three roads are impassable at this time. The roads are 1525, 1716, and 637 at the intersection of 617. Motorists will also need to avoid 722 and the dead-end at 514., said Phyllis Little, director of Cullman County Emergency Management Agency.
“The road department is at work now on these roads and others,” Little said. But we need everyone to be patient and extremely cautious.”
Roads that are passable but demand extreme caution include 1492, 1488 and 1401.
Culverts are washed out on those roads, which are primarily in he east end of county some areas north, Little said.
“All of the affected areas have alternate routes, but we need everybody to just slow down and use extra caution,” Little said. “If you see water in the road don’t go through it. You don’t know what’s underneath it. And if the water is moving, it only takes a few inches to sweep away a car.”
Little said 5-7 inches of rain fell across Cullman County on Sunday. She said more heavy rains and storms could be arriving this weekend.
