Flood Warning canceled for Hampden County

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Storms have been passing through western Massachusetts throughout the day. Another storm brought more heavy rain and thunderstorms into the Pioneer Valley, Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service had issued a Flood Warning southwestern Hampden County until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, but that has been canceled. The areas that were at risk of flooding were Springfield, Chicopee, Westfield, Agawam, West Springfield, Longmeadow, Southwick, and Granby.

At 8:03 p.m., the NWS reported that the radar shows thunderstorms along a line extending from near Hardwick to near Thomaston, moving northeast at around 10 to 15 mph. The main threat with these storms is heavy rainfall with one-hour rainfall amounts exceeding one-inch per hour possible, which may lead to urban and poor drainage flooding.

A Flood Warning was issued earlier Tuesday in northeastern Franklin County and south central Hampden County, but those have since been canceled.

A Flood Warning means that significant flooding is imminent or has been reported. Do not drive through flooded roads; don’t drown, turn around.
