More severe storms on the way

Mike Randall reports in the Times Herald-Record that after severe storms damaged the area twice in the past week, more bad weather is forecast from July 14 through July 18. The series of rainstorms on the way will include some severe thunderstorms, and could cause more flooding locally. AccuWeather meteorologist Jeff Nordeen said, "There are going to be some damaging winds — 40 to 60 mph at times.... AccuWeather's max forecast for these storms is 70 mph." And hail "can't be ruled out completely," Nordeen said. There could be between 2 and 4 inches of rain falling over the weekend, with as much as 4 to 8 inches in some spots, Nordeen said. So with the ground still saturated by last weekend's storms, flooding could occur with the new rainfall. Read more about this story in the Times Herald-Record.
