CORRECTED TO MENTION FLOODING

...RAINY WEATHER ACROSS CHUUK AND POHNPEI THROUGH MONDAY...

A PERSISTENT NEAR-EQUATORIAL TROUGH ALONG WITH FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL
WINDS HAVE TRIGGERED WIDESPREAD CONVECTION ACROSS CHUUK AND POHNPEI
STATES SINCE EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS CONVECTION HAS PRODUCED ABOUT
6.5 INCHES OF RAINFALL ON POHNPEI ISLAND OVER THE PAST 18 HOURS...
INCREASING THE POTENTIAL OF MUDSLIDES. LOCAL FLOODING IN LOW-LYING
AREAS HAS BEEN REPORTED ON POHNPEI. EVEN THOUGH NO SIGNIFICANT
RAINFALL HAS RECORDED ON WENO ISLAND OF CHUUK STATE YET...SATELLITE
LOOPS SUGGEST MODEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS ACROSS OTHER ISLANDS IN CHUUK
LAGOON FOR THE PAST 18 HOURS. THIS WET PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON WITH ADDITIONAL RAINFALLS OF 1 TO
3 INCHES POSSIBLE. THIS WILL FURTHER INCREASE THE THREAT OF
MUDSLIDES AND ADDITIONAL FLOODING FOR BOTH STATES...ESPECIALLY ON
POHNPEI.

RESIDENTS LIVING NEAR VALLEYS AND STEEP SLOPES ACROSS CHUUK AND
POHNPEI STATES SHOULD MONITOR THIS SITUATION CLOSELY. LISTEN FOR
INSTRUCTIONS FROM LOCAL EMERGENCY OFFICES...AND LATER STATEMENTS
FROM LOCAL WEATHER OFFICES AND THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
