Here’s the latest from Grays Harbor Deputy Director of Emergency Management Chuck Wallace:
At this time 3.5” of rain is expected to fall between today and Wednesday. A Flood Watch remains in effect for all Grays Harbor County.
A Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flooding but flooding is not imminent or occurring.
An Urban & Small Stream Flood Advisory is in effect for the entire County. Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams.
There will also be ponding of water in urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses, as well as other poorly drained areas and low lying spots. Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Standing water just a few inches deep can cause loss of control of a vehicle. Rapidly moving water only a few inches deep can quickly carry away your vehicle.
