National Weather Service Melbourne FL
513 PM EDT TUE JUN 27 2017

Seminole FL-Brevard FL-Orange FL-
513 PM EDT TUE JUN 27 2017

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Southeastern Seminole County in east central Florida...
  Northwestern Brevard County in Florida...
  Southeastern Orange County in east central Florida...

* Until 645 PM EDT

* At 512 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
  thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Titusville, Oviedo, Rockledge and Cocoa.

Radar indicates that 1 to 3 inches of rain has already fallen in
some locations...and another inch or two will be possible before the
rain tapers off.


A Flood Advisory means heavy rainfall is causing or is likely to
cause ponding of water in urban areas and elevate river or stream
flows. Minor flooding may cause temporary lane or road closures...
but the threat of water entering homes and business is low.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause temporary flooding
of urban areas such as highways...streets...and intersections...as
well as poor drainage areas and low lying spots.

Motorists should deactivate cruise control and slow down in heavy
rainfall to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Leave safe distance
between other vehicles. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where
the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to
allow your vehicle to cross safely. Turn around...don`t drown.

State law requires headlights to be turned on when windshield wipers
are in use.

To report flooding...have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service Office in Melbourne.
