COUNTY...

AT 554 AM CDT...NWS METEOROLOGISTS CONTINUED TO DETECT THUNDERSTORMS
PRODUCING FLASH FLOODING OVER THE WARNED AREA. RADAR ESTIMATED
BETWEEN 2 AND 4 INCHES OF RAINFALL HAS OCCURRED...PRODUCING FLASH
FLOODING. AN ADDITIONAL 1/2 INCH IS POSSIBLE.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL
CREEKS AND STREAMS...COUNTRY ROADS...AS WELL AS FARMLAND ALONG THE
BANKS OF CREEKS AND STREAMS.

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.
