Flash Flood Watch issued


Staff Report



The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a Flash Flood Watch for portions of Southeast Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.

The Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning

The NWS predicts heavy rain will develop Wednesday through Wednesday night. One to 1.5 inches of rain falling over-saturated ground will have the potential to produce flash flooding. Poor drainage areas, creeks, streams and ditches will have the highest chance of experiencing flooding.

The NWS advises people in the watch area should keep an eye on the weather and be prepared for immediate action should heavy rains and flooding occur, or a Flash Flood Warning be issued. Avoid low-lying areas and be careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses.
