County Road Closures During Flash Flood Warning

A flash flood warning is in effect for Montgomery County until 11:15 a.m., and until 1:45 p.m. in some areas, and the Fire and Rescue Services have reported multiple road closures due to flooding from the heavy rain.

Travelers should check Pete Piringer, MCFRS, and MCDOT Highway Services’ updates on Twitter prior to traveling to check for road closures near them. MCFRS advises all travelers to turn around if they encounter flooded roads, as many vehicles have had to be rescued from floods and the Fire & Rescue Services’ communications are on Condition Red, resulting in limited availability to help those in trouble. The county government warns that 12 to 18 inches of water is enough to carry away most vehicles.

This post will be updated with any additional reported closures.
