...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
815 AM CDT FOR SOUTHWESTERN COOK COUNTY...

AT 716 AM CDT RAIN CONTINUED TO FALL ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA BUT
THE INTENSITY IS NOT AS GREAT AS EARLIER THIS MORNING. RADAR
ESTIMATES 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN HAS FALLEN FROM ABOUT TACONITE
HARBOR TO JUST INLAND FROM CASCADE RIVER STATE PARK. RUNOFF FROM THE
RAIN OVERNIGHT WILL KEEP RIVERS AND STREAMS RUNNING HIGH. THE RAIN
WILL DIMINISH AS THE MORNING PROGRESSES. IF YOU NOTICE ANY FLOODING
PLEASE INFORM LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AND HAVE THEM RELAY TO THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.

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.

TO REPORT FLOODING...HAVE THE NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY RELAY
YOUR REPORT TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE.
