Sunday Severe and Flooding Potential

The biggest threat through Monday will be flash flooding.  Most of the state is under a flash flood watch.  We have at least 2 more rounds of significant rainfall and the 2nd one is coming tonight.

With several inches of rain already and more coming at night, it can be a recipe for huge problems.  At night, it's difficult to see flood waters until it's too late.  If water covers the road, remember to just turn around and find a different route.   Did you know flash flooding kills more people each year than tornadoes?  PLEASE don't become a statistic.

This video goes over specific timing and threats.

Hearing reports of 5" of rain in Harrison. 7"+ in Newton County which is just south of Harrison. Buffalo river is very dangerous right now. Been a long time since it has reached current heights.
