FLASH FLOOD WATCH Issued for Most of W.Va.


aaaThe National Weather Service in Charleston, West Virginia, has issued a Flash Flood Watch for portions of Northeast Kentucky, Southeast Ohio and West Virginia.

The special weather watch will remain in effect from Thursday morning through Friday morning.

“The ground in the watch area is quite wet from rounds of heavy rain during the past few days.  Additional rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches with higher amounts are possible beginning Thursday morning and then continuing into Friday morning,” stated a flood watch issued by the weather service.

“If this amount of rainfall is realized, some areas may see flash flooding of small streams and creeks and roads, especially in low lying and poor drainage areas.”

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.  Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.  Residents are encouraged to monitor forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.
