- Flash flood WATCH. Flooding MAY happen. Stay aware of the weather and your surroundings.
- Flash flood ADVISORY. Minor flooding is LIKELY. You may receive a warning from the sheriff’s department or Everbridge (you must sign up for Everbridge to receive these warnings). Pay attention to warnings.
- Flash Flood WARNING. Flooding is IMMINENT or OCCURRING. You will be notified by authorities if evacuation is necessary. Stay out of low-lying areas.
