Yavapai County Under Flood Watch
Heavy rains are expected for the Tri-City area Monday and Tuesday. Because of this, the National Weather Service has issued a flood watch until 5 a.m. Wednesday. Residents can prepare for any flooding by obtaining free sandbags from your local fire stations or at the Yavapai County Public Works building on Commerce Drive in Prescott. While the sandbags are free, you do have to fill them yourself. Also, do not drive through low water crossings that are flooded as you could become stranded or your vehicle could be washed away. Other precautions you can take include knowing where the nearest high ground to your home is located, and keeping any important documents in a water proof container.
