Rains From Isaac Remnants Cause Problems in Ala

The remnants of Hurricane Isaac are still causing problems in Alabama.


The National Weather Service says storms caused as much as 4 inches of rain in parts of west Alabama early Tuesday, and another 1 or 2 inches of rain was possible.


Forecasters issued flash flood warnings because runoff from the downpours could cause flooding in areas including Brent, Centreville and parts of Tuscaloosa. Areas of Dallas and Lowndes counties were under flash flood warnings in central Alabama.


There are scattered reports of downed trees in west Alabama. Alabama Power Co. says the storms left as many as 22,000 customers without power at various times.


Forecasters say the heaviest rains should taper off by Wednesday.
