Heavy rain could bring flooding in areas of NH
The Weather Service said heavy rainwas expected to fall late Monday in southern New Hampshire, including the cities of Manchester, Nashua and Keene.
Urban areas are susceptible to the flooding, the Weather Service said, and people should take steps to protect any items that could be damaged by floodwaters. People who live in flood prone areas should have a safe place to go if needed.
"Due to recent heavy rainfall, the ground is already saturated, so any additional rainfall will quickly run off into streams and rivers," the Weather Service said.
Rainfall of an inch an hour is possible in southern New Hampshire, especially if accompanied by thunderstorms, the Weather Service said. The rainfall average will be 1 to 2.5 inches through Tuesday evening.
