We could see a threat of flooding in our area due to heavy rains and warm temperatures. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch from 3 p.m. Thursday to 10 a.m. Friday.

Richland CODA(County Organizations for Disaster Assistance) encourages all residents and businesses to prepare for flooding and take measures to remove property from lower levels of homes, buildings and low lying areas near streams.

Be sure to check that sump pumps are working and elevate items from basement floors. In the event of a flooding, you can contact First Call 211 to list your location and possible losses.

Richland CODA will review the list and determine what response, if any, will be available.
