  FOR THE FOLLOWING MUNICIPALITIES...

  IN PUERTO RICO
     CANOVANAS...CEIBA...NAGUABO...FAJARDO...LUQUILLO...RIO GRANDE

* AT 746 PM AST...DOPPLER RADAR ESTIMATED THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVY
RAIN IN THE  ADVISORY AREA. OVER ONE INCH OF RAIN HAS ALREADY FALLEN
ACROSS THIS AREA AND ADDITIONAL RAIN IS MOVING IN. THE HEAVY SHOWERS
MAY CAUSE SMALL STREAM FLOODING AS WELL AS RAPID RIVER RISES ACROSS
THE AREA. MUDSLIDES CANNOT BE RULED OUT IN AREAS OF STEEP TERRAIN.

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.
