THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN ELKO HAS ISSUED A

* SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY FOR...
  NORTH CENTRAL EUREKA COUNTY IN NORTH CENTRAL NEVADA...
  THIS INCLUDES THE CITIES OF...PALISADE...EMIGRANT PASS...

* UNTIL 745 PM PDT

* AT 446 PM PDT A THUNDERSTORM WITH HEAVY RAINS WAS STUCK OVER
EMIGRANT SUMMIT. THIS WILL CAUSE PONDING OF WATER IN LOW SPOTS AND
WATER RUNNING DOWN THE STEEP SLOPES OF INTERSTATE 80. THIS WILL
LIKELY IMPEDE TRAFFIC.

USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN DRIVING ON INTERSTATE OVER EMIGRANT SUMMIT.
OTHER AREAS SOUTH OF THE SUMMIT WILL ALSO EXPERIENCE FLOODING. DON`T
GET ON THE NEWS BECAUSE YOU DROVE INTO FLOOD WATERS.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. IF YOU COME TO A FLOODED OR
CLOSED ROAD...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.
