Flash Flood Watch (posted 2/25/19)
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch starting Monday evening, Feb. 25 through Wednesday morning, Feb. 27. Wind gusts are expected to be between 20-35 mph in the valley with higher gusts over the mountains. For full details, please visit the National Weather Service website.
Flash flooding can occur in areas where the ground is saturated and the Santa Clara Valley Water District advises that if floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground. A foot of water will float many vehicles. Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles, including SUVs and pick-ups.
