  DRAINAGE AREAS IN
  FOR THE FOLLOWING MUNICIPALITIES...

  IN PUERTO RICO
     HATILLO...ARECIBO...CAMUY AND QUEBRADILLAS

ADVISORY AREA. RUNOFF FROM THIS HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE PONDING OF
WATER IN URBAN AREAS... HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL
AS OTHER POOR DRAINAGE AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS. REDUCED
VISIBILITIES ALONG HIGHWAY 2 ARE LIKELY WITH THIS HEAVY RAINFALL.

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. MOVE TO
HIGHER GROUND.
