WILMINGTON — The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a Flood Watch — that includes Clinton County — in effect from 1 a.m. Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release by the Clinton County EMA.

Flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible with 1-2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts possible.

Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations, the National Weather Service announced. People in the watch area, especially those living in areas prone to flooding, should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Residents and motorists are urged to monitor the latest forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings.

This round of heavy rainfall comes on the heels of over 2 inches of rain that fell last Thursday, leading to ponding, hazardous driving conditions and some flooding.

The Flood Watch is for many counties in Southwest Ohio as well as in Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana.
