Kauai under a flash flood warning

The GRCA issued the watch through to Tuesday, April 17, and cites current forecasts of local rainfall totals expected to reach 90 millimeters in some areas along the Grand River.

Meteorologists say the storms will likely move out of the region completely by this afternoon, but not before raising the risk of flooding in areas of poor drainage.

The start of the work week looks to be a soggy one in the Garden State, with the National Weather Service placing most of the state under a flash food watch as a round of rainy weather moves into the region. In North Carolina, this includes Rockingham and Stokes Counties.

A flash flood warning means that flash flooding is imminent or already occurring.

Excessive rainfall may lead to flash flooding in urban areas such as Roanoke and Martinsville, and along creeks, streams and low lying areas. Be prepared to take quick action if a flash flood warning is issued.

The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer, manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris. The second half of the week looks mostly dry and much calmer although there could be a few showers overnight Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.
