Do you know the difference between a flood watch and a flash flood warning? Last month, many parts of San Diego County were under flood alerts due to increased monsoonal moisture that brought heavy rain to parts of the mountain and inland areas. Our Mission Valley East team offers this information about flash flood watches, flash flood warnings, and flood watches from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:

Flood Watch
