...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1000 PM EDT FOR
NORTHEASTERN MIFFLIN AND NORTH CENTRAL JUNIATA COUNTIES...

AT 920 PM EDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE MOVED OUT
OF THE AREA. HOWEVER...RUNOFF FROM EARLIER HEAVY RAIN WILL CONTINUE
TO PRODUCE MINOR FLOODING THROUGH 10 PM...ESPECIALLY AROUND THE
VILLAGE OF WALNUT...WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAIN FELL.

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.

A FLOOD ADVISORY MEANS RIVER OR STREAM FLOWS ARE ELEVATED...OR
PONDING OF WATER IN URBAN OR OTHER AREAS IS OCCURRING OR IS IMMINENT.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL ACROSS FLOODED ROADS. FIND ALTERNATE ROUTES.
IT TAKES ONLY A FEW INCHES OF SWIFTLY FLOWING WATER TO CARRY VEHICLES
AWAY.
