National Weather Service Issues Flood Watch


A flood watch is in effect for the WKVI listening area from this evening through tomorrow morning. According to the National Weather Service, widespread rainfall of 1 to 2 inches is possible tonight into tomorrow. The rainfall onto already wet ground will likely create sufficient runoff for flooding of roadways, small streams and creeks, basements and other low-lying areas.

A flood watch means there’s potential for flooding based on current forecasts. Residents are urged to monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. People who live in flood-prone areas should prepare to take action should flooding develop.
