Flash Flood Watch in effect starting 2 am Friday

Flash Flood Watch in effect starting 2 am Friday

"There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect for areas south of I-70 through 8 p.m. because ~2" of rain is expected and a good chunk of that may fall in a very short period of time. The National Weather Service indicated heavy rain falling across the area, bringing up to two inches of new rainfall.

With last year's flood disaster still fresh on many minds, the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management held briefings for emergency managers statewide, spokesman Lawrence Messina said. Even Indiana in the Midwest felt the impact of Cindy, which sprang Tuesday from the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical storm before roughing up the Deep South and making landfall Thursday. Cindy also caused widespread coastal highway and several short-lived tornadoes.

Crews in Memphis cleared storm drains to help prevent street flooding before the storm arrived.

The National Weather Service said the remnants may also produce tornadoes.

An isolated severe storm is possible with damaging winds and flooding the main concerns. Danielle Clewley, a 25-year-old student, was in a supermarket parking lot putting away groceries in her auto Friday.

But she saw no damage in her neighborhood and thought hype in advance was due to officials feeling it was better people were overprepared than underprepared.
