Some river floods bring nutrients to soil. A classic example is the Nile River in Egypt that would flood every year and bring nutrients.

FLOOD WATCH, FLOOD WARNING, FLOOD ADVISORY:

What's the difference between these classifications?

Severe Thunderstorm Warning, Flood Watch, Lake Effect Snow Warning, Wind Advisory, Freezing Rain Advisory… we’ve heard all of these before and will hear them again. But, which of these should have us taking life saving measures and which should we all but ignore? Well, a lot of the time it comes down to whether it is an Advisory, a Watch or a Warning.

No matter what the actual weather you are dealing with is, here is the basic rule of thumb:

  • WATCH essentially means a “chance” this condition will happen and usually covers a large geographical area for a lengthy time period.
  • WARNING means the said weather is already occurring or is likely to occur and to take proper protective measures. Warnings are usually issued for much smaller geographical areas and usually for shorter more definite time periods.
  • ADVISORIES are sort of in between a WATCH and WARNING. The expected weather condition has a pretty good chance of occurring, even a likely chance of occurring, but typically an advisory is used for “less” severe type of weather conditions. A Wind Advisory might be issued or a Freezing Rain Advisory issued instead of a High Wind Warning or an ice Storm Warning.
