Weather Spotters, River Watchers Raising Awareness as Storms Keep Coming
Posted on: 07/01/2013
By  Mike Cullums
Washington County was under a flash flood warning from 3:45 until 6:45 this morning.
The heaviest rain, as much as 2.5 inches, fell in Watertown Township.
The Sheriff’s Office reported no problems other than some standing water in ditches and poor drainage areas. Likewise the Highway Patrol reported no highway closures, weather-related crashes or  other problems.
Unfortunately, occasional slow-moving thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next seven days, raising concern not just for flash flooding but for the possibility of high water on area rivers.
Hydrologists at the Weather Service Charleston Forecast Office are watching the rivers closely. WMOA News will pass along any pertinent information as it develops.  
One useful tip as you watch for bad weather the next few days: Forecasters say storms will be moving from south to north.
