* URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY
  FOR THE FOLLOWING MUNICIPALITIES...

  IN PUERTO RICO
     ARROYO...CANOVANAS...CEIBA...NAGUABO...JUNCOS...LAS PIEDRAS...
     MAUNABO...PATILLAS...SAN LORENZO...YABUCOA...FAJARDO...
     LUQUILLO...HUMACAO AND RIO GRANDE

* AT 1010 AM AST...THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR
  INDICATED DEVELOPING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH ESTIMATED
  MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN MOVING ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA. THESE
  SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL LIKELY PRODUCE PERIODS OF LOCALLY HEAVY
  RAINFALL WHICH MAY LEAD TO QUICK RISES IN SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS
  AS WELL AS MINOR FLOODING IN URBAN AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.

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.
