...THE ARROYO AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
1115 PM MDT FOR CENTRAL SAN JUAN COUNTY...

AT 1011 PM MDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN DUE
TO THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL CAUSE ARROYO AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING

THIS FLOODING WILL REMAIN OVER MAINLY RURAL AREAS OF CENTRAL SAN
JUAN COUNTY. NORMALLY DRY ARROYOS AND WASHES WEST OF BLANDING ARE

WASH AND BUTTER WASH.

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.

A FLOOD ADVISORY MEANS RIVER OR STREAM FLOWS ARE ELEVATED OR PONDING
OF WATER IN URBAN OR OTHER AREAS IS OCCURRING OR IS IMMINENT.
