SEMA issues flood watch for Southborough area

southboroSouthborough – The Southborough Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has issued a flood watch for the Southborough area:

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a “Flood Watch” for the Southborough area (ultimately the watch is for pretty much all of Massachusetts). The Watch is in effect from Tuesday mid-day thru Wednesday afternoon.

The combination of the high water table, rapidly melting snow pack and a forecasted 1″ of rain Tuesday will create conditions for small stream and urban flooding, especially in areas with blocked/snowed-in catch basins.

The flooding should be minor in our area, but could result in flooded basements and hazardous road conditions.

As a future note. There has been a lot of snow locally and up North this season, which may result more significant flooding as that snow melts. Flooding will be drastically increased if we have a rapid long-term warming and/or wet spring.

This informational purposes – no SEMA action is expected/planned.
