Flood Watch Issued

Oct. 20, 2017

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flood Watch for Pierce County rivers effective Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. With moderate to heavy rainfall forecast in the mountains, minor to moderate flooding could occur on several rivers. 

A Flood Watch means conditions are favorable for flooding but flooding is not imminent or occurring. Residents living in or near river floodplain areas are highly encouraged to monitor local media, the NWS and this web page for the latest forecasts and river conditions. Be ready to take the necessary actions to protect life and property if flooding occurs or a flood warning is issued.
