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.
