The National Weather Service says heavy rain this week has caused flooding in parts of west Alabama.

Forecasters issued a flash flood warning for Sumter County Friday. Authorities say flood waters were
getting into homes along Highway 17.

The weather service also has issued a flood warning along the Tombigbee River.

Forecasters say the river will crest at nearly a
foot above flood level by early Saturday, causing flooding in rural parts of Pickens County. And Livingston could see minor flooding from the Sucarnochee River.

Weather radar indicates as much as 9 inches of rain has fallen in southeast Mississippi, leading to the flooding.

Forecasters say isolated areas received up to 11 inches in the last day, and 4 more inches of rain is possible.
