...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH WEDNESDAY
MORNING FOR FIRE BURN AREAS...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Fire burn areas in portions of Northwest Oregon, including the
  following areas, Cascades in Lane County, Central Columbia River
  Gorge, Northern Oregon Cascades, and Western Columbia River
  Gorge. This Flash Flood Watch includes but is not limited to the
  Eagle Creek burn area, the Whitewater burn area, the Separation
  burn area, the Rebel burn area, and the Avenue burn area.

* Through Wednesday morning

* From one to three inches of rain is forecast for burn areas in
  this area through Wednesday morning, with the heaviest rain
  later Tuesday night. The lack of vegetation and the burn
  scarring will likely result in enhanced runoff, debris flows,
  mudslides, and landslides in and downstream of the drainages
  affected by the fires and in the steep terrain.

* For the Eagle Creek fire, this could affect communities
  between Latourell and Hood River, and possibly Interstate 84.
  For the Whitewater fire, this could affect close to
  Breitenbush and also close to State Highway 22. For the
  Separation fire, this could affect Highway 242 east of Belknap
  Springs. For the Rebel fire, this could affect the road south
  of Cougar Reservoir.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
