in much of the region. The runoff potential has increased,
making flash flooding and river flooding more likely. There have
already been numerous high water reports, including flooding of
roads and road closures. If expected rainfall amounts are
realized, this could become a dangerous situation, with water
possibly getting into homes and businesses in places.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for for high water
problems based on the current forecast of heavy rain.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
