...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
730 PM MST FOR CENTRAL LA PAZ COUNTY...

AT 406 PM MST...LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTED HEAVY RAIN IN
QUARTZSITE DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL CAUSE URBAN AND SMALL
STREAM FLOODING. UP TO ONE INCH OF RAIN HAS ALREADY FALLEN AND AN
ADDITIONAL HALF OF AN INCH OF RAIN IS POSSIBLE.

TYSON WASH IS FLOWING AND CROSSING SEVERAL ROADWAYS. SOME ROADS HAVE
BEEN CLOSED BUT IF THEY ARE NOT...DO NOT DRIVE INTO THE FLOWING
WATER. ADDITIONAL PONDING OF WATER AND MINOR FLOODING IS LIKELY
ALONG HIGHWAY 95 THROUGH 530 PM.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
QUARTZSITE AND BRENDA.

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.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER IN URBAN AREAS...
HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS OTHER POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.
