Localized Road Flooding, River Not Forecast to Flood

15 July – 09:27 AM
Your mobile phone may have given you a “Flash Flood Warning” several times this morning.

This is reference to road, creek and stream flooding, not river flooding.

However, if you have a moment, please watch this YouTube video of a small creek flash flooding. It happens very quickly.

This is the specific danger that the weather service is warning of – a small creek can turn into a huge, powerful torrent in a matter of a few moments.

Please don’t drive or walk through flooded roads. Simply take another route or wait until the water goes down.

Local Roads Subject To Flooding Tonight

July 6 – 11pm 

The National Weather Service has issued flood warnings because Various creeks and streams are out of their banks in places and driving conditions may be hazardous. As little as 6″ of moving water can knock a vehicle off the road.  

River levels will remain far below flood and are not a concern. 

Weather Is Great, River is Low: Good time for Storm Prep

The old saying, “The best time to fix the roof is when it’s not raining” holds true for being prepared for severe weather.

Now’s a great time to make sure your emergency supplies are all up to date and ready to go.

Dig around in first aid kits, toss any expired medications. Make sure you have not “borrowed” anything like batteries from your emergency kits. Replace your 3-day water supply, and if you have a generator that you haven’t used in a while, start it up, let it get a little warm and then change the oil. Remember that gasoline goes bad over time, so you need to keep any gas-powered items fueled only with fresh gas at all times.

If you have a “grab & go bag” give it a once over (especially for the kids).

Finally, make sure you have extra charging cables and car adapters for your devices – these are super-handy in storms.
