PINE COUNTY. THIS COMPLEX OF STORMS WILL PRODUCE BRIEFLY HEAVY RAIN
OVER A PERIOD OF SEVERAL HOURS. LOCAL FLOODING IS EXPECTED IN SMALL
STREAMS...NORMALLY DRY WASHES...AND LOW SPOTS. EVEN AFTER THE RAIN
STOPS IN A PLACE...RUNOFF WILL CONTINUE FOR A TIME AFTER. DO NOT
THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE IT QUIT RAINING...THAT THE FLOODING IS OVER.
IT ALWAYS FLOODS AFTER THE RAINS STOPS.

ROCKY TERRAIN WILL BE ESPECIALLY PRONE TO FLOODING...AND OLD BURN
SCARS WILL ALLOW RAIN TO RUN RAPIDLY OFF AND MAKE FLOODING WORSE.

REMEMBER THIS SIMPLE RULE...IF YOU COME TO A FLOODED OR CLOSED
ROAD...TURN AROUND. DON`T DROWN. IN THE DARK YOU WON`T SEE THE WATER
UNTIL YOU ARE IN IT.
