National Weather Service Issues Flash Flood Warning

National Weather Service, Riverton

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for north central Natrona County as of 8:33 p.m. today.

Slow-moving thunderstorms moving across the area have already dumped between three inches and four inches of rain in the Red Wall area, according to the NWS office in Riverton.

“Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to occur,” according to the NWS. “Some locations that will experience flooding include Red Wall, Buffalo Creek and other draws and creeks across northeast Natrona County.”

An additional one to two inches of rain are possible in the area.

The Weather Service says a flash flood warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. If you are in the warning area you should move to higher ground immediately. Residents along streams and creeks should take immediate precautions to protect life and property.

It also says to not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth by foot or by vehicle.

Report flooding to the National Weather Service in Riverton at 1 (800) 211-1448.
