GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County may get up to four inches of rain Monday. Consequently, the county is now under a flash flood watch.

An accident at Highway 49 and Highway 53 adds to the mess. A car flipped over.  Rescue teams rushed to the intersection at 9:45 a.m.

A series of showers soaked coastal Mississippi Monday morning. The downpours created ponding on local roads. Neighborhood streets have flood waters covering them. Gulf Park Estates is under a flood advisory because of the rain. And the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Stone County.

WLOX First Alert meteorologist Wesley Williams urges you to use extreme caution if you need to drive somewhere Monday morning.
