FLOOD WARNING FOR MURDER CREEK & BURNT CORN CREEK… The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for Murder Creek and for Burnt Corn Creek near Brewton and East Brewton. Ongoing heavy rain will continue to exacerbate flash flooding that is happening in parts of Escambia (AL) and Conecuh counties overnight. It cannot be stressed enough: Please do not be on the roads tonight unless you absolutely have to in these areas.

It should be noted that minor to moderate flooding is forecast, and as of now, flooding is not expected to reach the boardwalk buildings in Downtown Brewton, AL.

Murder Creek is forecast to rise to a level of 25.6 feet. This means that flooding of Downing Street in Brewton and flooding of portions of Snowden Street and Forrest Avenue (US29) will be possible.
