White Mountain National Forest Warns of Water Danger

With rain and thunderstorms expected today and tonight - and possibly later this week - The White Mountain National Forest is warning visitors to be wary of water.

“We don’t want them to underestimate the power of water,” said Tiffany Benna, a spokeswoman for The White Mountain National Forest.

Benna says heavy rain or a thunderstorm can result in surprising and dangerous changes in just a few hours.

“The water levels can change daily, even hourly,” she said.

So, a stream that was easily forded in the morning could become impassable a few hours later.
