HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Colbert County EMA sent a traffic advisory just after noon on Friday advising that all county maintained roads and bridges may become impassable due to flooding and debris. The advisory does not cover any muncipal or federal roads.

The advisory warns drivers to use extreme caution if they must get out and travel. Drivers are reminded not to go around barricades on any bridges or roads.

Friday morning the Colbert County EMA responded to Nathan Estates off Wilson Dam Road south of Muscle Shoals due to flooding. Some residents had asked for help leaving their homes due to high floodwater that cut off road access.

The EMA is also pumping water away from a home near a flooded field on Cassie Davis Street.
