Wellington updates map of flood prone areas

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a flood watch for all of Palm Beach County through Friday afternoon.

Wellington has several areas that are known to flood when heavy rain falls. Though the biggest threat with Hurricane Matthew is wind, the storm could still dump lots of rain.

As of 6 a.m., the outer bands of the hurricane are quickly moving toward the Florida Coast.

The village updated its flood map yesterday. Check to see if your area is on there.
