UPDATED AT NOON
What a crazy morning! Here is a list of rain reports as of this morning. We have included a list of flooding reports at the bottom of this blog. There are many streets closed or blocked off, please use caution!
An Urban and Small Stream flood warning is in effect until 5:45PM . Please do not drive through flooded roads or intersections!
A Flood Warning has been issued for the Pawtuxet River in Cranston; flooding is possible this afternoon. Click here for more details on this warning.
A Flood Warning has been issued for the Pawcatuck River in Westerly; flooding is possible this afternoon and evening. Click here for more details on the warning.
So the morning has been bad, any improvements this afternoon?
The threat of showers and downpours will be with us the entire day and night. However, it looks like we will get some breaks in the rain at times during the afternoon. Therefore, the worst of the rain is over, but we will have to monitor the threat of additional flooding in case any additional downpours fire up again. -Pete Mangione
