...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
1130 PM CDT FOR NORTHERN CHRISTIAN AND NORTHERN TODD COUNTIES...

AT 833 PM CDT...MOST OF THE HEAVY RAIN THAT PROMPTED THAT ADVISORY
HAS MOVED EAST OF THE ADVISORY.  UP TO THREE INCHES OF RAIN HAVE
ALREADY FALLEN SINCE THIS AFTERNOON OVER MOST OF NORTHERN CHRISTIAN
COUNTY AND EASTWARD INTO TODD COUNTY BETWEEN ALLEGRE AND CLIFTY.

AT THIS TIME...NO ADDITIONAL REPORTS OF FLOODING HAVE BEEN RECEIVED
ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA.

SHOULD ENOUGH DRAINAGE FROM ROADS AND LOW LYING AREAS OCCUR DURING
THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO...THE ADVISORY MAY BE CANCELLED PRIOR TO 1130
PM CDT.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...
HOPKINSVILLE...CROFTON...HAWKINS...CLIFTY AND ALLEGRE.

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.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.

TO REPORT FLOODING...HAVE THE NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY RELAY
YOUR REPORT TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE.
