Areal Flood Warning

National Weather Service has issued an AREAL FLOOD WARNING. It’s important to understand this type of flooding is different that the fast-moving flash floods. Areal flooding is in a large area and occurs when the ground is saturated and can no longer hold the rainfall. It’s slow developing and will most heavily impact low-lying areas, shallow or narrow creeks and tributaries, and known-problem areas.

Basement flooding, pooling water in low-lying areas and saturated or soggy grounds will be most common. It’s important to pay attention to your surroundings and stay safe. Please report severe issues or impacted roads by dialing 9-1-1.
