...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
145 AM EDT FOR LEE...WESTERN SCOTT AND SOUTHWESTERN WISE COUNTIES...

AT 104 AM EDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED MOSTLY LIGHT RAIN THAT STILL
MAY CAUSE LINGERING URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING IN THE ADVISORY
AREA. UP TO AROUND ONE INCH OF RAIN HAS ALREADY FALLEN.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT MAY EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
JONESVILLE...BIG STONE GAP...PENNINGTON GAP...APPALACHIA...ST.
CHARLES...DUFFIELD...CLINCHPORT...JASPER...PATTONSVILLE...DRYDEN AND
PARDEE.

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.

IN HILLY TERRAIN THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF LOW WATER CROSSINGS WHICH ARE
POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS IN HEAVY RAIN. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL ACROSS
FLOODED ROADS. FIND ALTERNATE ROUTES. IT TAKES ONLY A FEW INCHES OF
SWIFTLY FLOWING WATER TO CARRY VEHICLES AWAY.
