  the Salmon River and other smaller rivers in northern Oswego
  County.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop. Stay tuned to weather radio or other radio and tv
stations for further details or updates.
