...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1015 AM CDT SATURDAY FOR
NORTHEASTERN RENO COUNTY...

AT 927 PM CDT...LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTED FLOODING ACROSS MUCH
OF THE WARNED AREA. SEVERAL RURAL ROADS ARE CLOSED OR EXPERIENCING
HIGH WATER DUE TO SATURATED SOILS...AND EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM
EARLIER HEAVY RAINFALL CAUSING SLOW RISES ON AREA CREEKS AND SMALL
STREAMS.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
HUTCHINSON...SOUTH HUTCHINSON...BUHLER...NICKERSON...ARLINGTON...
PARTRIDGE...ABBYVILLE...YODER...WILLOWBROOK AND HUTCHINSON AIRPORT.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
HOWEVER...ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
IMMEDIATELY.

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.
