Excessive rainfall over the warned area will cause mud slides near
steep terrain. The mud slide can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and
other loose materials.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
San Juan, Fajardo, Guayama, Coamo, Santa Isabel, Gurabo, Canovanas,
Guaynabo, Sabana Seca, Vega Alta, Naranjito, Humacao, Trujillo Alto,
San Lorenzo, Yabucoa, Naguabo, Barranquitas, Maunabo, Las Piedras and
Cayey.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible in the
warned area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.
