Flash flood watch, heavy rains continue
BATON ROUGE- Weather officials said a flash flood watch continues for some of the WBRZ viewing area early Wednesday morning.
Moderate rainfall is still expected through the morning hours. Be aware during the morning commute and remember to "Turn Around, Don't Drown." Only a few inches of moving water is enough to carry your vehicle.

Multiple wrecks were also reported on I-10 and I-110 during the slippery conditions. Drivers should be prepared for potential delays throughout the morning.
