...The flood advisory continues for the Gunnison River...

  Gunnison River at Delta affecting Delta County
  Gunnison River above Grand Junction affecting Mesa County

.Expect low land flooding along and near the lower Gunnison River
due to snowmelt and reservoir releases. Some pasture land near the
river may become inundated. The Gunnison River has already peaked at
Delta and has stabilized at about 9.3 feet and will be slowly
dropping over the next few days. At Grand Junction, the river is
expected to slowly decrease. The river has dropped to 10.9 feet and
will continue to decrease into Monday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety Message...Do not drive through flooded areas as two feet of
water is enough to float most vehicles. Caution is urged when walking
near waterways. Avoid flooded areas and unstable riverbanks. Stay
tuned to developments by listening to NOAA Weather Radio or your
local TV or radio stations.
