Manati, Utuado, Barceloneta, Orocovis, Juana Diaz, Pajonal, Coto
Laurel, La Alianza, Barahona, Franquez, Guayabal and Potala Pastillo.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
