There are safety precautions you can take to protect your family and property, when flash flood or other flood notices are issued.
The National Weather Service and NOAA continually monitor local weather conditions. If major flooding is anticipated within the Town, NOAA will broadcast notices like Flood Warning, Urban Flood Advisory or Flash Flood Warning Notices through television and radio stations, such as TV Channels 4,7 and 10, and radio stations such as WIOD (610 AM) and Big 105.9 (FM). The notices will override your cable service with a rolling script across the bottom of your television. These notices are intended to help residents prepare for the possibility of heavy flooding in their neighborhoods. The Town recommends that residents tune in to these broadcasts and prepare for flooding when it may occur.
Warning times may be as long as five days for hurricanes, or one to two hours notice for flash floods and urban advisories. The key is to keep aware of these notices when watching or listening to these and other stations.
