Heavy rain, urban flooding in MA weekend forecast

Heavy rain, urban flooding in MA weekend forecast

The river, which has been steadily rising since Friday morning, is predicted to reach 7.6 feet, according to the National Weather Service. Flood stage is at 10 feet.

Many roads were flooded, the weather service said. Lowland and agricultural land throughout the county also experienced flooding. Some drivers ignored the warnings and drove through the water anyways. Because the soil is already saturated and streams are already swollen that means flooding is likely nearly any day, with some potential for significant river flooding late in the week through the weekend. That watch, issued just before 10:40 a.m. Monday, lasts from Tuesday afternoon to Friday morning.




The Okanogan River near Tonasket is running at more than 18 feet, while flood stage is 15 feet. Localized rainfall of one to three inches is likely where this occurs, and combined with the rainfall received this past weekend, this may lead to instances of flash flooding.

Several roads around Frederick County, Maryland, are underwater Tuesday night after flash floods inundated the area.
