Flash flooding possible in Lake, Porter counties

Jay Miller of the Madison Forestry Department used a chainsaw on a damaged ash tree after a lightning strike destroyed it early Wednesday

The weather service posted a flash flood watch through 11 a.m. Thursday for all of Western New York.

- A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for some counties in the metro area. The rains are expected to continue into Friday.

"Showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon into the evening".

If you live in one of these areas, monitor conditions and be ready to seek higher ground if warnings are issued. The greatest threat for heavy rain and severe storms will be from 2 p.m. through 8 p.m. Local storm total rainfall amounts could exceed 5 inches, which would be enough to trigger flooding.

"Several rounds of thunderstorms are forecasted today", said the NWS in its West Michigan flood watch explanation. Up to three inches of rain has already fallen and flash flooding is ongoing or could begin shortly.

The runoff will cause flooding of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots. Temperatures will hold in the 80s through sunset to an overnight low in the middle 70s.

Drivers are urged to not test flood roadways, as water may be deeper than it appears. The river was expected to go up another few inches before receding at night.
