Flash Flood Watch issued for Accomack and Northampton

September 10, 2020
 |

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has expanded the Flash Flood Watch to include Accomack and Northampton Counties, as well as portions of southeast Maryland, northeast North Carolina and Virginia, including the following areas, in southeast Maryland, Inland Worcester and Maryland Beaches.

Through this evening widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected to continue to move across the area today. The greatest threat for flash flooding will occur during the afternoon and evening. In total, 1 to 2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts are expected through late this evening. This will likely result in localized flash flooding. In addition, the ground is already saturated across parts of the watch area due to heavy rainfall earlier today and yesterday.

Potential impacts include rapid rises of water, flooded roads, and flooding of structures in low lying areas near streams.

Do not enter or cross flowing water or water of unknown depth. Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become unstable and unsafe.
