RAIN CONTINUES THROUGH THE WEEK, STAY INFORMED!

For Immediate Release- September 10, 2018

More heavy rainfall in the forecast today and tonight.  The National Weather Service is predicting Montgomery County to receive more than 2” of rain in the next 24 – 48 hours. At this time we are outside of the Flash Flood Watch area, but this could change quickly.  As a reminder with soil saturation and slow runoff street flooding could occur, be safe when driving, especially at night. Turn Around, Don’t Drown.

Thunderstorms could be possible every day this week.  We are keeping abreast of developments to the tropical disturbance over the eastern Caribbean.   There is a 50% chance of development into a tropical depression or storm over the next 5 days.  We will continue monitoring and update as necessary.

This is an excellent reminder that we are in the peak of Hurricane season. Now is the time to prepare and finalize all hurricane preparedness kits and plans. Continue to closely monitor the weather forecast as we move through the next few days. Things can change quickly. Now is the time to prepare!
