National Weather Service Issues Flood Watch for Alexandria

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Alexandria until Thursday night (October 29) as the remnants of Tropical Storm Zeta move through the region.

“Heavy rainfall from Zeta could lead to some flooding of small streams, creeks, and urban areas,” warned NWS. “Rain amounts of two- to-three inches are expected with locally higher amounts possible, especially in the metro areas.”

Alexandria was plagued by severe flooding after numerous rain events over the summer, prompting the City Council last month to ask for an update from staff on $750 million on stormwater management mitigation efforts.

According to NWS:

Scattered incidents of flooding due to heavy rain are possible. Clogged drains due to leaf debris may cause additional flooding concerns, especially in urban areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

  • Do not enter or cross flowing water or water of unknown depth.
  • Stay away or be swept away.
  • River banks and culverts can become unstable and unsafe.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
