...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
645 PM MDT FOR NORTHWESTERN PROWERS AND NORTHEASTERN BENT COUNTIES...

AT 551 PM MDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN
FALLING IN THE ADVISORY AREA.  HEAVY RAIN FELL IN THE ADVISORY AREA
EARLIER AND THE ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL ONLY ADD TO THE MINOR
FLOODING PROBLEMS IN NORTHWEST PROWERS AND NORTHEAST BENT COUNTIES.

EXPECT MINOR FLOODING OF ROADWAYS...SMALL STREAMS AND LOW LYING
AREAS THROUGH 645 PM.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
LAMAR...WILEY...MCCLAVE...JOHN MARTIN RESERVOIR AND CADDOA.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL
CREEKS AND STREAMS...AS WELL AS FARM AND COUNTRY ROADS. DO NOT
ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL ACROSS FLOODED ROADS. FIND ALTERNATE ROUTES.
