1028 AM EST MON NOV 24 2014

...THE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 415 PM EST FOR ERIE...
NORTHERN CHAUTAUQUA...WYOMING...SOUTHERN GENESEE AND NORTHWESTERN
CATTARAUGUS COUNTIES...

TEMPERATURES WILL WARM INTO THE LOWER TO MID 60S THROUGH THIS
AFTERNOON. WHILE RAINFALL OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS HAS ONLY AMOUNTED
TO LESS THAN A QUARTER ACROSS THE AREAS THAT RECEIVED THE HEAVIEST
SNOWFALL OVER THE LAST WEEK...THERE REMAINS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF
WATER LOCKED UP IN THE REMAINING SNOWPACK AND THE RATE OF SNOW MELT
WILL INTENSIFY WITH THE RISING TEMPERATURES SO THAT SIGNIFICANT
MELTING OF THE WATER LADEN SNOW PACK WILL LEAD TO AREAS OF FLOODING.
MEANWHILE THE POTENTIAL FOR ICE JAM FLOODING HAS LIKELY ENDED.

RESIDENTS NEAR CREEKS ARE URGED TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO PREPARE FOR
POSSIBLE FLOODING NOW...INCLUDING MOVING ITEMS FROM BASEMENTS.

SINCE MANY STORM DRAINS ARE SNOW CLOGGED...MANY URBAN AREAS WILL
LIKELY EXPERIENCE FLOODING WITH SEVERAL FEET OF WATER POSSIBLY
ACCUMULATING ON SOME STRETCHES OF ROAD. SOME RESIDENTIAL BASEMENTS
WILL FLOOD. THE THREAT FOR STRUCTURAL FAILURE WILL INCREASE THROUGH
THIS AFTERNOON.

IN ADDITION...WIND SPEEDS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON
AND TONIGHT. THESE WINDS WILL BRING DOWN SOME TREES AND POWER
LINES...POSSIBLY CAUSING SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES. THIS WILL ALSO
CAUSE SUMP PUMPS TO FAIL.

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...

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER IN URBAN AREAS...
HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS OTHER POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.

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.
