...THE SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1230 PM

AT 906 AM PDT DOPPLER RADAR INDICATES WIDESPREAD LIGHT TO MODERATE
RAIN ACROSS WESTERN ELKO COUNTY...ROTATING SOUTHEAST. ACCUMULATING
RAIN WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS. WITH THE ADVISORY
AREA SATURATED FROM PREVIOUS RAINS AND FLOODING...MOST NEW RAINFALL
WILL GO DIRECTLY TO RUNOFF. WATER FLOWS ON ROADWAYS AND LOW-LYING
AREAS ARE EXPECTED.

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. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

TO REPORT FLOODING...HAVE THE NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY RELAY
YOUR REPORT TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE.
