...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
330 AM EDT FOR PASSAIC...ORANGE...WESTERN PUTNAM AND ROCKLAND
COUNTIES...

At 146 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to showers and
embedded thunderstorms. This will cause urban and small stream
flooding in the advisory area. Radar estimates indicate up to near
two inches of rain have already fallen in some areas. Heavy rain
will continue before 330 AM.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Newburgh, Middletown, West Milford, Beacon, Ringwood, Suffern, Port
Jervis, Monroe, Walden, West Point, Warwick, Goshen, Sloatsburg, Cold
Spring and Howells.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
