A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.

Excessive runoff from snowmelt will cause flooding of ditches...
coulees... country roads... farmlands and other low lying areas that

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
