Intense rainfall associated with these thunderstorms may result in flooding of low lying areas. All watercourses in our area may experience higher than normal water levels and flows. As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

This Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Saturday May 30, 2020.
