Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 5:16 AM CDT Aug. 19, 2018 – National Weather Service

... The urban and small stream flood advisory remains in effect until
700 am CDT for southeastern Stutsman County...

At 505 am CDT, gauge reports indicated over two inches of rain fell
at the Jamestown Airport between 3 and 4 am this morning. Of that
rainfall, 1.70 inches fell in just over 20 minutes. The very heavy
rain has ended but light to moderate rain continues to fall in the
Jamestown area, with just under a quarter of an inch falling between
4 and 5 am. Due to the very heavy rainfall in such a short amount of
time, drainage areas will take some time to recover early this
morning. Normally flood prone streets and underpasses will also need
time to drain.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you encounter a flooded underpass or street, turn around, don't
drown. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff will also cause flooding of small creeks and
streams, drainage areas and low lying spots around the Jamestown
Metro area.
