...THE ARROYO AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL

AT 205 PM PDT...HEAVY RAIN HAS ENDED HOWEVER THE THREAT OF MINOR
FLOODING REMAINS DUE TO EARLIER STORMS.

EARLIER DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED UP TO AN INCH AND A HALF OF RAIN IN
PORTIONS OF THE ADVISORY AREA. THIS WILL CAUSE ARROYO AND SMALL
STREAM FLOODING.

THIS FLOODING WILL REMAIN OVER MAINLY RURAL AREAS OF NORTHEASTERN
HUMBOLDT COUNTY...EAST OF THE SANTA ROSA MOUNTAINS AND NORTHEAST OF
PARADISE VALLEY.

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...DON NOT DROWN.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL
CREEKS...STREAMS AND ARROYOS...AS WELL AS DIRT ROADS. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO TRAVEL ACROSS FLOODED ROADS. FIND ALTERNATE ROUTES.
