New Flood Warning for Germantown Area

September 9, 2018

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for Germantown and northern portion Montgomery County until 3:30 pm to Sunday, Sept 9.

   The warning stated, “At 9:33 am, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause flooding. Up to two inches of rain have already fallen and additional rainfall amounts around 1 inch are expected. This will cause creeks and streams to gradually rise out of their banks.”

   Montgomery County locations that may experience flooding include the northern portion of Germantown, Clarksburg and Damascus.

   A Flood Warning means Flooding is occurring or is imminent. Most flood deaths occur in automobiles.  Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway.  Do not attempt to cross water covered bridges, dips or water covered roadways.

   Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep a vehicle off the road.  When encountering flooded roads make the smart choice...turn around...don't drown.
