Were you caught in one of the major thunderstorms yesterday? While driving down Rte 201, I could see rigid rain lines on the asphalt drawn of who was, and wasn't affected. Along with the thunderstorms, came the threat of flash flooding. While this warning seemingly came out of nowhere, it was only 7-8 weeks ago the Kennebec and other rivers were running abnormally high. More scattered storms are expected today. Most of the potential for flash flooding will be for northern and western Maine, but Central Maine isn't out of the woods yet. “Heavy rainfall of this magnitude can quickly flood roads and cause washouts, making them impassable,” the weather service said in a news release. “In addition, small creeks and streams could leave their banks and cause flooding. This is especially true in hilly and mountainous areas.”
