Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 6:18 AM EDT on July 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on July 03, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Kentucky... southeast Ohio... southwest
Virginia and West Virginia... including the following areas...
in northeast Kentucky... Boyd... Carter... Greenup and Lawrence
KY. In southeast Ohio... Gallia... Jackson OH and Lawrence OH.
In southwest Virginia... Buchanan and Dickenson. In West
Virginia... Boone... Cabell... Clay... Fayette... Jackson WV...
Kanawha... Lincoln... Logan... Mason... McDowell... Mingo...
Nicholas... Putnam... Raleigh... Roane... Wayne and Wyoming.

* Through this evening

* showers and storms are expected to increase in coverage today.
Local downpours are likely.

* Due to the recent rounds of showers and storms... the ground is
wetter than normal. That allows for faster runoff into small
streams and creeks. Rains of 1 to 2 inches in less than a few
hours could cause vulnerable streams to flood. Local rain
amounts of 3 inches or more would cause more serious flash
flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a dangerous situation.

Those living along flood prone creeks... plus County and state
officials... should monitor water levels frequently during any
heavier showers today and this evening. Be prepared to take
action should water levels rise quickly... or a Flash Flood
Warning is posted.

Also... being the start of the Independence day Holiday weekend...
travelers need to slow down during any heavier rain. Do not drive
through water flowing across roads... or into flooded underpasses.
