706 PM CDT THU JUL 28 2016

...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 830 PM CDT FOR NORTH
CENTRAL LEE COUNTY...

AT 703 PM CDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED THAT THE STORMS WHICH
PRODUCED HEAVY RAIN HAVE ENDED ACROSS THE AREA. HOWEVER...LINGERING
RUNOFF MAY CONTINUE TO PRODUCE SMALL STREAM FLOODING IN THE ADVISORY
AREA...BUT CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE THROUGH THE EVENING.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
FRANKLIN GROVE AND ASHTON.

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.
