The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Delaware, northeast

Delaware, Kent and New Castle. In northeast Maryland, Kent MD
and Queen Annes. In New Jersey, Atlantic, Atlantic Coastal

* From Wednesday morning through Thursday evening.

* The remnants of Hurricane Ida will pass through the region
Wednesday through Wednesday night, finally departing on
Thursday. Periods of heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms
associated with this low will result in widespread 2 to 4 inches
of rain with locally higher amounts from late Tuesday night
through Thursday morning. Combined with wet antecedent
conditions, this will lead to flash flooding.

* Flooding of creeks, streams, urban areas, and poor drainage
areas is possible. Water is likely to cover the roads,
especially in low lying areas. Roads and structures near rivers
may be flooded.


A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters may
quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams and
creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.
