Flood Advisory Issued

he National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for southern Fairfield County until 1:45 p.m.

At 12:50 p.m. National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated several thunderstorms over the area that have produced rainfall rates up to 1 inch per hour. Minor flooding of poor drainage areas and small streams is possible.

Minor flooding means that although streams and creeks may rise out of their banks, property damage will be minimal. Inconveniences can be expected but the flooding will not be immediately life threatening.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Turn around and find another route.
