Tropical Storm Warning

We are expecting our biggest impact to be heavy rain which could cause some flash flooding and/or river flooding. Rainfall forecasts are calling for four to eight inches of rain.

The strong, southeasterly winds could cause water to pile onshore, rivers to back-up and cause flooding in low-lying and flood prone areas. We could see tropical storm force winds starting early Saturday morning.

Secure your outdoor objects and protect your property. Stay weather aware.
