Flash Flood Watch

From the Brattleboro Town Manager

At 4:07am on Saturday September 3, 2011 the National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the Brattleboro area beginning Sunday, September 4th at 2pm and continuing into Tuesday, September 6 at 8:00am. Conditions are favorable for strong thunderstorms. Local stream beds, including portions of the Whetstone Brook, are fragile as a result of Hurricane Irene. Flash flooding could make waterways behave unpredictably, and water levels may rise more quickly than in the past. If you see rising water evacuate to higher ground immediately.

Residents are advised to closely monitor future statements from the National Weather Service. Tune in to 96.7 FM WTSA the emergency broadcasting service for our area for additional information. In addition, residents are encouraged to register with the Brattleboro Emergency Notification System (BENS) at www.brattleboro.org. If you would like a weather alert radio, one will be provided to you free of charge at the Brattleboro Fire Department Central Station
