Flood Watch Issued By National Weather Service

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of western Pennsylvania and the surrounding area.

According to the National Weather Service, the flood watch is in effect from late Sunday night until 7 p.m. Monday.

The watch was issued because up to an inch-and-a-half of rain will fall across the area and combine with the melting snow.

Due to the rain and snow melt, streams and creeks in low-lying areas may flood. The National Weather Service will be keeping a close eye on the area’s rivers as well.

The flood watch was issued for the following counties in Pennsylvania:

Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, Washington and Westmoreland.

The flood watch was issued for the following counties in West Virginia:

Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, Monongalia, Ohio and Preston.

The flood watch is also in effect for Garrett County, Md.

      They’re not in the flood watch, so why would they be mentioned?

      1. John J Johnson says:

        They are in the flood watch. KDKA cheap computers never has them in the watch. Maybe they need to fix the “glitch”, Its been like that for some time now.

    va…. all the streams and creeks flow thru westmoreland county… into fayette and allegheny so its kinda stupid that kdka keeps coming to take pictures of our creeks and how they overflow but they dont mention in there watches…

    Is this like last week’s warning of impending doom with torrential rain all night and floods? They have their heads up their buttocks.

    YAY! Severe Weather!!!
    Be sure to run to Giant Eagle and stock up on bread and milk. It’s going to rain. Hurry run now before it’s too late.
    Now make sure we get a shot of the reporter standing by the creek watching the water and don’t forget the Mon Wharf shot too. Forget Libya, Iran and North Korea and the chaos in Wisconsin. Just the weather please.
