Authorities are warning drivers in Mobile County to be careful because severe flooding has washed out some roads or made them impassible.
Mobile County Public Works officials say that if drivers can't see the roadway because of pooling water they should take alternative routes. Roadways may be washed away under the water or the roadway may be obstructed by debris.
Public works officials are asking residents to stay off the roads, if possible, until a thorough assessment of conditions can be made.
Crews are checking the roads throughout the county and will update conditions through the day.
