Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 6:19 AM EDT on July 05, 2015

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on July 06, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 11 am EDT this morning
through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northeast Kentucky...
southwest Virginia and southern West Virginia... including the
following areas... in northeast Kentucky... Lawrence KY. In
southwest Virginia... Buchanan and Dickenson. In West
Virginia... Boone... Clay... Fayette... Kanawha... Lincoln...
Logan... McDowell... Mingo... Nicholas... Raleigh... Wayne and
Wyoming.

* From 11 am EDT this morning through late tonight

* showers... with a few thunderstorms... 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... and quicker
rises on 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 2.5 inches or more could 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 tonight. Be prepared to take action
should water levels rise quickly... or a Flash Flood Warning is
posted.

Also... being the end 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.
