  RECENT RAINFALL...AND FLASH FLOODING COULD OCCUR VERY QUICKLY.
  HEAVY RAINFALL COULD DEVELOP ON ALL ISLANDS...THOUGH THE
  GREATEST THREAT WILL BE ACROSS THE SMALLER ISLANDS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE WEATHER FORECAST AND KEEP A
RELIABLE WAY TO RECEIVE WARNINGS FOR YOUR LOCATION. CAMPERS AND
HIKERS SHOULD CONSIDER RESCHEDULING THEIR OUTING TO A TIME WHEN
WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO BE MORE FAVORABLE. REMEMBER...IT DOES NOT
HAVE TO BE RAINING HEAVILY WHERE YOU ARE FOR FLASH FLOODING TO
OCCUR.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS VERY DANGEROUS. NEVER DRIVE
INTO AREAS WHERE WATER COVERS THE ROAD.
