THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SAN JUAN HAS ISSUED AN

* URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY
  FOR THE FOLLOWING MUNICIPALITIES...

  IN PUERTO RICO
     BAYAMON...GUAYNABO...SAN JUAN...DORADO...CATANO AND TOA BAJA

* UNTIL 445 PM AST

* AT 246 PM AST...DOPPLER RADAR ESTIMATED VERY HEAVY RAIN IN THE
  ADVISORY AREA.

EMERGENCY MANAGERS REPORTED STREET FLOODING ONGOING IN CATANO FROM
HEAVY RAIN. ADDITIONAL SHOWERS CAN BE EXPECTED TO CAUSE ANOTHER INCH
TO CONTINUE LOCALIZED FLOODING...ESPECIALLY BETWEEN CATANO AND
DORADO.

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.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
