Flood Watch Tomorrow, Friday 12/28


The potential for heavy rain tomorrow coupled with still saturated ground has led the NWS to post a Flood Watch for tomorrow, Friday 12/28.

This is mainly a concern for low lying areas and small streams that tend to flood in heavy rain, but we should also be aware of blocked storm sewers and other road ponding.

flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
