National Weather Service Issues Flood Watch

Posted on September 22, 2021

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch through late tonight for Hardin and Auglaize Counties in our area.

Rainfall will continue over the region through the bulk of the day before ending in most areas during the late evening.

The heaviest and most steady rain will occur this afternoon and evening.

Expect rainfall totals of 3 to 4 inches over the watch area, with locally higher amounts possible where storms persist over any one particular area.

This rainfall will create rises on area creeks and streams and could produce flooding forlow lying areas and other spots with poor drainage.

People in the watch area, especially those living in areas prone to flooding, should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Monitor the latest forecasts on 95.3 WKTN and be alert for possible flood warnings.
