THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TUCSON HAS EXTENDED THE

* FLOOD WARNING FOR SMALL STREAMS IN...
  NORTHEASTERN PIMA COUNTY IN SOUTHEAST ARIZONA...

* UNTIL 1145 AM MST

* AT 209 AM MST NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RADAR HAS SHOWN A DOWNWARD
TREND IN SHOWERS ACTIVITY THOUGH THERE IS A BROAD AREA OF SHOWERS
OFF TO THE WEST. THIS AREA OF SHOWERS WILL MOVE EAST OVER THE NEXT
SEVERAL HOURS AND SHOULD INCREASE IN COVERAGE. GIVEN THE ALREADY
SATURATED SOILS EXPECT MOST OF THE RAINFALL TO BECOME RUNOFF TODAY
WHICH WILL ADD TO THE ALREADY FLOWING WASHES.

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
HOWEVER...ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
IMMEDIATELY.

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.
