Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:08 PM CST Feb. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect from Wednesday morning through Sunday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of Indiana and Kentucky, including
the following areas, in Indiana, Clark, Crawford, DuBois,
Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Orange, Perry, Scott, and
Washington. In Kentucky, Allen, Anderson, Barren, Bourbon,
Boyle, Breckinridge, Bullitt, Butler, Clark, Edmonson,
Fayette, Franklin, Grayson, green, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison,
Hart, Henry, Jefferson, Jessamine, LaRue, Logan, Marion,
Meade, Mercer, Nelson, Nicholas, Ohio, Oldham, Scott, Shelby,
Simpson, Spencer, Taylor, Trimble, Warren, Washington, and
Woodford.

* From Wednesday morning through Sunday morning

* several rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected across
the watch area from Wednesday through early Thursday. Additional
rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected late Thursday
through late Saturday night. 3 to 6 inches of rainfall is
expected through Sunday morning which result in excessive runoff
and flooding.

* This rainfall combined with already saturated soils will lead to
excessive runoff which will cause already swollen rivers to rise
more. Significant and continued rises on the Ohio, the salt, the
Kentucky River, and the Green River are expected throughout the
week and into the weekend. In southern Indiana, the Blue River
and muscatatuck river will see significant rises later this
week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
