MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Very heavy rain is leading to flash flooding in portions of East Mississippi on our Monday morning.

So far, there have been reports of flooding on Highway-19 about 3 miles north of Collinsville and on Marion-Russell Road. Flooding has also been reported on roadways and yards in Union. Tanglewood Drive in Lauderdale County also had water over roads and yards.

Pleasant Grove Road in Little Rock had some flooding, along with the end of Highway-489 in Union and on Highway-492 in Union. Flooding was also reported in the Snowden Hills subdivison in Collinsville and there was some flooding in Martin.

With the rain not as heavy as earlier this morning, water may be receding in many of these areas. Still use caution and turn around, don’t drown when coming across a flooded roadway.
