More flood potential in twin levels

The Twin Tiers begins a new week with yet another potential for flooding issues, even with new rainfall amounts forecast less than a tenth of an inch outside of thunderstorms.

With soils still very wet from recent rain episodes, isolated flooding will be possible, especially during possible thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Places that have already experienced flooding in recent days will be more vulnerable to additional rainfall.

Residents and businesses near waterways should keep abreast of current weather and water conditions and be prepared to take any necessary action.

Residents who have storm sewers near their home or business should help prevent flooding in poor drainage areas by removing debris from these drainage grates.
