NWS issues flash flood watch

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Johnson County in effect until late Tuesday night. Recent heavy rains have made the soil saturated to the point where additional rainfalls expected this afternoon may cause flooding. Storms this afternoon are expected to produce an additional one to two inches of rainfall.

Smaller streams and creeks are particularly vulnerable to flash flooding. The NWS asks drivers to remember that even a couple of inches of water on a roadway are enough to float away a vehicle.
