PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible. Flash
flooding is very dangerous.

Please monitor the forecast and be prepared to take action if a
Flash Flood Warning is issued for your location.

Do not drive through flood waters. The water may be deeper than
you think it is. A vehicle can easily become trapped in flood
waters endangering its occupants and those who come to their
rescue.
