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.
