DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Thunderstorms fired up Friday afternoon along with some storm and flood warnings across the Miami Valley.  More rain could bring flash floods overnight into Saturday.   A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Saturday afternoon.

Storm Team 2 says our area is under an elevated risk of severe storms.

“It is possible to see rain fall at a rate of one to two inches an hour at times,” said Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis. “Low lying areas have the best chance collect high water. Many of the usual places that flood in our area have another shot of seeing high water.”

There were some reports of damage across the Miami Valley after Friday’s storms.  Most reports indicate that some trees came down during the storms.  There are also power outages to report.  Clark and Leonard streets in Piqua for under water for a time.  One family had to escape their home when it flooded.

The forecast for Saturday calls for more heavy rain at times. The high temperature will struggle to hit 70 degrees.
