Flash Flooding from Heavy Rains Expected

Don Rush

The National Weather Service is warning of flash flooding and flooding from poor drainage with heavy showers and thunderstorms expected tonight.

In addition, some of the thunderstorms could bring gusty winds.

Looking ahead the Wilmington News Journal reports that next week could see even more heavy rain with local flooding.

All of this comes as heavy rains in Pennsylvania has resulted in the opening up of the Conowingo dam and the voluntary evacuation of Cecil County, Maryland.
