(KFVS) - Several Heartland roads are closed due to significant rainfall.

Rainfall is not expected to be heavy this week, but it is expected to be steady Tuesday, Feb. 4.

Never drive cars, trucks, or sport utility vehicles through flooded areas. If you come across a flooded roadway, do not drive through the water, turn around.

Transportation officials, also, urge you to report flooded roadways that are not marked by signage.

Just north of the Heartland, snowy and wintry conditions could make for slick travel.
