FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS FRIDAY

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in Uncategorized

A Flood Watch has been posted for our area by the National Weather Service.  It took effect at 7 am this morning and remains in place until Friday morning.  Additional rainfall is anticipated to produce significant runoff and flooding of area creeks and rivers.  High water may persist even after the rain ends. 

Floyd County Public Works closed Silver Hill Road at a point 500 feet north of Big Texas Valley Road on Monday due to a mudslide.  A projected date for re-opening has yet to be determined.  Thomas Bluff Road located in northeast Floyd County is closed due to high water near the Gordon County line; this is because of river back-up, not flash flooding.  This road might be closed for a few days due to the rainy forecast.

An 80 percent chance of showers has been forecast for our area by the NWS for today and tonight; daytime highs will be in the mid 40s with lows during the overnight hours around 40.  Gusty winds are also anticipated.
