Steps to prevent flooding
AUGUSTA (WGME) – There are steps you can take to prevent flooding.
That includes clearing any storm drains near your home.
Many of them around the state are buried in snow, and if they're blocked, that means all that water could back up into roads and possibly buildings.
In Augusta, public works crews are trying to get as many drains uncovered as they can Thursday, to prevent any problems Friday.
Augusta Public Works say they do expect to see some flooding with all the snow still on the ground melting in addition to rain.
