(WZDX) - Heavy rains have flooded many streets in north Alabama, forcing authorities to shut them down.
Below is a list of problem areas that either have been shut down or have standing water:
Widespread flooding of streets and low-lying areas has prompted Decatur police to warn people not to attempt to drive through standing water. Parents also are being urged to closely monitor children in the vicinity of drainage ditches.
Flooded streets included Royal Drive Southeast and Chenault Drive Southeast, Springview Street Southwest and Kelly Drive, Towerview Street Southwest, Bird Spring and Day roads, Joe Davis Drive at Old Highway 31, and portions of Sixth Avenue.
