Flooding has subsided in Perry and Leslie counties, the National Weather Service reported Tuesday morning.

Flood warnings were issued about 2 a.m. Tuesday after runoff from heavy rain caused streams and creeks to fill overnight in the areas of central Perry and east central Leslie counties. Emergency dispatch had reported flooding about 1:50 a.m. along Big Creek Road, the weather service said.

Flooding was expected along multiple creek, streams and drainage areas, including Middle Fork, Maces Creek, Big Creek, Macintosh Creek and Browns Form.

Streams and creeks have receded or were beginning to recede Tuesday morning so the flood warning was allowed to expire, according to the weather service.
