  SOUTHWEST GRANT COUNTY. BETWEEN 1.75 AND 4.5 INCHES OF RAIN FELL
  LAST NIGHT FROM AN AREA OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT CROSSED OVER

  RESULTED IN WATER RUNNING OVER THE ROADS IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS. THE
  PUBLIC WORKS WERE CURRENTLY PLACING BARRICADES UP IN PARTS OF SW
  PARTS OF GRANT COUNTY AT THIS TIME.

THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING STREAMS AND DRAINAGES...CIMARRON RIVER

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.
