Areal Flood Warning Issued For Hernando County

HERNANDO COUNTY, FL. – The National Weather Service has issued an Areal Flood Warning for Hernando County until 7:45 p.m. Heavy rainfall over the past couple of days has caused some localized flooding in flood-prone and low-lying areas.

Additional heavy rainfall today is likely to continue to cause flooding problems in areas that have received heavy rainfall. Between 4 and 6 inches of rain have fallen.

Additional rainfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches are possible in the warned area.

Areal flood notifications are issued as warnings and not advisories. They are issued when flooding is prolonged and has developed gradually from persistent to moderate rainfall.

These are issued as warnings rather than advisories because areal flooding can pose a threat to life and property.
