Jefferson County Emergency Management Coordinator John McKee says between five and seven inches of rain had fallen, causing significant flooding.
“Multiple roads are covered with water, we have some bridges that are covered,” McKee says. “Most of it’s in the Reynolds area.”
McKee says the storm front stayed in place diagonally across the county, with more rain arriving behind the initial wave of precipitation.
No reports of funnels had been received as of mid-Tuesday evening and there are no reports of any injuries.
McKee cautions persons who are out in their vehicles not to drive through water on roadways.
