The office issuing a flood/flash flood watch or warning will issue follow-up statements to keep the public fully informed of the most current information. Statements are used to remove geographical areas covered by the original flood or flash flood watch/warning when flooding is no longer a threat or has ended in that area. A statement will not be used to extend the length of time or add area to a watch/warning. In those cases, a new watch or warning will be issued.
