South Tippah schools dismissing early due to road flooding

Schools is the south Tippah school district are dismissing early due to flooding of county roads.

Tippah county is currently under a Flash flood warning

The NWS is warning to take this flooding seriously.

Be prepared for numerous rounds of heavy rain that will last through the night and for much of Friday. The ground simply cannot absorb any more rain and this is going to result in significant flooding for some areas. Some roads will likely wash out. Water may get high enough to inundate some homes. If you live in a flood prone area it would not hurt to prepare to evacuate, just in case. Do not even think about driving across flooded roadways tonight and tomorrow. It’s not worth your life.
