WASHINGTON (AP) - Heavy rain and flooding expected through the next few days in the mid-Atlantic region, shifting weekend plans and spurring a flurry of preparations.

Local authorities warned residents Thursday to clear drains and remove or secure outdoor furniture before days of heavy rain that are already canceling events around the region.

Maryland’s football game against Michigan is moving from 8 p.m. to noon on Saturday. The University of Delaware canceled Sunday’s Coast Day, which typically draws 10,000 people to the coastal town of Lewes.

The National Weather service has issued flash flood watch for Washington, northern Virginia, southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore from Friday morning through late Saturday. Coastal flood warnings and advisories are in effect during the same period in central and southern Delaware and on the Eastern Shore.
