The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch in effect until 1 p.m. Friday.

Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms producing locally heavy rain will develop tonight through Friday morning.

The ground remains saturated in the region due to the recent heavy rains associated with Tropical Storm Isaias, and this will make it easier than usual for flooding to occur in areas that receive heavy rainfall over a short duration.

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash flooding which can be life-threatening.

Residents and visitors are asked to closely monitor the forecast and weather conditions. Please don’t be caught off-guard. Heavy rain flooding can impact parts of the island that don’t typically experience tidal flooding.

For Police and Fire Department emergencies, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 609-263-4311.
