...THE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 200 AM EDT FOR
SOUTHEASTERN HARFORD COUNTY...

AT 1121 PM EDT EARLIER HEAVY RAIN HAS MOVED OUT...HOWEVER IT WAS
ENOUGH TO CAUSE HIGH WATER AND FLOODED ROADS ACROSS PARTS OF
SOUTHEASTERN HARFORD COUNTY MARYLAND. IN PARTICULAR...LOCATIONS FROM
EDGEWOOD UP TO ABERDEEN...AND SURROUNDING AREAS UP THE ROUTE 7
CORRIDOR HAVE A NUMBER OF ROADS CLOSED AS REPORTED BY COUNTY
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND THE 911 CENTER.

* LIGHT RAIN WILL PERSIST INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS WITH A CHANCE
OF AN EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORM BEFORE ALL RAIN SHIFTS EAST OF THE AREA
BEFORE DAWN.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

THIS FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS OCCURRING.

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.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODING. IF FLOODING IS OBSERVED ACT QUICKLY. MOVE UP TO
HIGHER GROUND TO ESCAPE FLOOD WATERS. DO NOT STAY IN AREAS SUBJECT TO
FLOODING WHEN WATER BEGINS RISING.
