Heavy rain could bring localized flooding later Sunday

Jeff Klein, Emergency Management Agency  director for Wood County, has issued the following advisory:

Rain will be moving through Wood County most of today.  Morning storms will not be severe, however that may change.  The best chance for severe weather in our area will be 3-10pm.  We can expect rain up to 1.5” with localized flooding, hail as well as an isolated tornado. Wind gusts up to 40 mph can be expected. 

The positive is regardless of the weather model used, the majority of Wood County  is on the northwestern border of this system.  The farther east and south you travel, expect the weather conditions to worsen. 

The Wood County EMA will be monitoring local conditions and providing updates impacting our County as they occur.
