...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH
The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has expanded the
* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of southern Delaware and
northeast Maryland, including the following areas, in southern
Delaware, Delaware Beaches and Inland Sussex. In northeast
Maryland, Caroline and Talbot.
* From Wednesday morning through Thursday evening
* The remnants of Hurricane Ida will pass through the region
Wednesday through Wednesday night, finally departing on
Thursday. Periods of heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms
associated with this low will result in widespread 1 to 3 inches
of rain with locally higher amounts from Wednesday through
Thursday morning. Combined with wet antecedent conditions, this
will lead to flash flooding.
* Flooding of creeks, streams, urban areas, and poor drainage
areas is possible. Water is likely to cover the roads,
especially in low lying areas. Roads and structures near
rivers may be flooded.
A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams
and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.
Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.
