* UNTIL 930 AM CDT WEDNESDAY

* THE HEAVY RAINFALL FROM THE PAST WEEK HAS CAUSED AREA
LAKES...SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...LOW WATER CROSSINGS AND LOW LYING
AREAS AS WELL AS THE MAIN STEM RIVERS TO FLOOD. THIS FLOODING WILL
LIKELY CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THIS WEEK. AREA LAKES ARE NEAR OR OVER
FULL CAPACITY. HIGH RELEASES ARE REQUIRED AND THIS MAY FLOOD THE
DOWNSTREAM RIVERS. ALSO...TRIBUTARIES THAT FEED INTO THESE RESERVOIRS
WILL ALSO BACK UP AND FLOOD UNTIL LAKE LEVELS GET UNDER CONTROL.
ROADS NEAR THE LAKES AND MAIN STEM RIVERS MAY BE UNDER WATER DUE TO
FLOODING...ESPECIALLY NEAR LAKES EUFAULA...WISTER...SARDIS AND HUGO.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE WATER COVERS THE ROAD TO
UNKNOWN DEPTHS. IT ONLY TAKES TWO FEET OF RUSHING WATER TO CARRY AWAY
MOST SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES AND PICKUPS. TAKE A DIFFERENT ROUTE TO
REACH YOUR DESTINATION OR WAIT UNTIL THE WATER RECEDES. REMEMBER...
MOST FLOOD RELATED DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES.
