PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Those living, working, or recreating along or near the river should
prepare for flood conditions and be ready to move to higher ground.
Follow emergency official instructions.

Flooding can cause additional hazards like bank collapse and channel
erosion. Avoid areas adjacent to a flooding river. Do not let
children play near floodwaters...especially around culverts and storm
drains.

Do not drive through flood prone areas...low water crossings...or go
around barricades. The road ahead may be undermined or washed out and
the water depth too great to allow your car to cross safely.

For the latest developments listen to NOAA Weather Radio or tune to
your local tv or radio station. Information can also be obtained from
the NWS website at www.wrh.noaa.gov/mtr

The next statement will be issued by 9 AM PST Tuesday or sooner as
conditions warrant.
