HUERFANO CO-
618 PM MDT WED JUL 23 2014

...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 745 PM MDT FOR SOUTH
CENTRAL HUERFANO COUNTY...

AT 616 PM MDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED ONLY LIGHT RAIN OVER THE
AREA...AS THUNDERSTORMS HAVE WEAKENED SINCE 6 PM MDT. HOWEVER...
MINOR FLOODING IN THE ADVISORY AREA WILL LIKELY CONTINUE DUE TO
EARLIER HEAVY RAINFALL.

THIS FLOODING WILL REMAIN OVER MAINLY RURAL AREAS OF SOUTH CENTRAL
HUERFANO COUNTY...INCLUDING THE EAST PEAK BURN SCAR.

THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING STREAMS AND DRAINAGES...SANTA CLARA
CREEK...WAHATOYA CREEK...SOUTH SANTA CLARA CREEK AND CHERRY CREEK.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

JUST A SMALL AMOUNT OF RAINFALL ON A BURN SCAR CAN LEAD TO FLASH
FLOODING. WATER THAT IS NORMALLY ABSORBED BY THE SOILS AND
VEGETATION...RUNS OFF ALMOST INSTANTLY. THIS CAUSES CREEKS AND
DRAINAGE AREAS TO FLOOD AT A MUCH FASTER RATE THAN NORMAL.  IN
ADDITION...THE SOILS IN A BURN SCAR BECOME UNSTABLE WHEN IT RAINS...
SOMETIMES RESULTING IN DEBRIS AND FALLING ROCK. ROADS CAN BE WASHED
OUT BY THE FORCE OF THE RUSHING WATER AND DEBRIS.
