SCOTT COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Parts of our viewing area are dealing with flash flooding.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation sent us an alert saying, all lanes of traffic are closed between Highway 35 and US 80 in Scott County. The area reopened right around lunch time. 

We have confirmed that at least 15-people had to be rescued from the Dog Creek community due to rising waters. And we've also learned that there's been at least on fatality when a woman's car hydroplaned and hit a tree.

We have a crew in Scott County right now and we'll have updates as they become available.
