12 Million People Under Flash Flood Watch in the Northeast

Severe thunderstorms and flash flooding are forecast to hit the northeast, hitting some of the same areas as Ida last Wednesday. 

A cold front moving from east-central Canada will bring scattered thunderstorms and heavy downpours Wednesday night into Thursday across the northern mid-Atlantic and western New England. 

Flash flood watches have been issued for more than 12 million people west of New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York State. 

Flash Flood Watch locations

  • Central New York 
  • Northeast Pennsylvania
  • Northeast New Jersey 
  • Southeast New York 

A flash flood watch is issued when hazardous weather is imminent or already happening. When a flash flood watch is in effect, it is encouraged people in impacted areas to prepare. 

Urban areas, roads, and small streams are most susceptible to flooding, with expected rainfall nearing one to two inches per hour.
