The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for Athens County from Wednesday 2/6/19 at 12 Noon through Thursday 2/7/19 at 1PM.
Rounds of moderate to heavy rain and the combination of already saturated soils, may cause flooding. Expect to see strong rises in creeks and streams and eventually major rivers. Be prepared for potential closure of some roadways that parallel rivers and creeks.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
