How to prepare for flash flooding

Good Morning Utah

Flash flooding can be a dangerous event if proper preparation is not made. Brian Mcinerney is a hydrologist from the National Weather Service and joined Good Morning Utah to talk about safety precautions that can be taken before and during a flash flood. 

“Our weather is about ready to change as the first true monsoonal push of precipitation arrives this week for northern Utah while the south has seen a few monsoon related storms. This should allow for areas that have not received much precipitation this summer to get a welcomed shot of rainfall and thunderstorms,” Brian explained. 

Keep an eye out for the forecast so you can be aware about any flash flood warnings in your area.
