City and County Continue to Monitor Possible Flooding

Both Sheridan and Johnson County remain under a flood watch that's expected to last throughout the weekend. Sheridan County Emergency Management Coordinator Dave Coleman says that Leopard Street in Sheridan is typically the first to flood, and that Big Goose Creek remains low in that area.

Coleman stated that he's heard a few people refer to the flood watch as a warning, which is completely different he says.

The National Weather Service has actually lowered their prediction of the amount of rain we are supposed to get locally, as they are now forecasting one and a half to three inches of rain by Sunday.

Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens says that the City and County will continue to work together throughout the situation.

We've also added a flood blog here on our website that will feature periodic updates from Dave Coleman.

Coleman's flood blog is on the left hand side of our homepage. Sandbags are available at the City Shop at 1148 KROE Lane on an as needed basis.
