GRUNDY COUNTY (KWWL) -

Heavy rain in eastern Iowa led to a few Flash Flood Warnings in the area Friday.

The National Weather Service in Des Moines issued a Flash Flood Warning just before 3 p.m. for eastern Hardin County and Grundy County until 8:45 p.m. Friday.

A Flash Flood Warning was also issued at around 3:15 p.m. for Black Hawk County until 9:15 p.m. Friday.

Up to four inches of rain fell in the area through Saturday morning, and flash flooding occurred in some locations, according to the Weather Service.

During Flash Flood Warnings, those in affected areas should move to higher ground, and remember to "turn around, don't drown" when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

Children should be kept away from storm drains, culverts, creeks and streams. Water levels can rise rapidly and sweep children away.
