FLOOD STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
853 PM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Texas...

  Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch affecting Brewster County
...The Flood Warning continues for the following rivers in Texas..
  Rio Grande at Presidio International Bridge affecting Presidio
  County
  Rio Grande below Presidio 5SE affecting Presidio County

.Continuing releases from the Luis Leon Dam into the Rio Conchos in
Mexico will result in elevated flows along the Rio Grande downstream
from the Rio Conchos. As a result, minor flooding can be expected on
the Rio Grande from Presidio International Bridge downstream through
Johnson Ranch in Big Bend National Park through late next week. This
flooding may be further exacerbated by rainfall along the Rio Grande
and its tributaries.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Motorists are urged to heed flood warnings, and exercise caution if
traveling through this area.  Vehicle-related fatalities are the
number one source of flood fatalities in West Texas and New Mexico.
If you encounter a flooded stretch of roadway, do not attempt to
cross it.  You and your vehicle could be swept downstream in rushing
floodwaters.  Turn around, don`t drown!

River levels are high.  Ranchers and farmers should move livestock
and machinery out of flood-prone areas if time permits.

Keep in mind that any additional rainfall across the area could
significantly change the present forecast stage.

Additional information is available at:  www.weather.gov/midland

The next statement will be issued later tonight or Sunday morning.

853 PM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

The Flood Warning continues for
  the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch.
* from Monday evening until further notice, or until the warning is
  cancelled.
* At  8PM Saturday the stage was 11.5 feet (3.5 meters).
* flooding is forecast.
* Flood stage is 15.0 feet (4.6 meters).
* Forecast...Rise above flood stage by Monday before midnight and
  continue to rise to near 15.1 feet (4.6 meters) by early Tuesday
  morning.  Additional rises are possible thereafter.
* Impact...At 15.0 feet (4.6 meters), flood stage is reached.
  Moderate lowland flooding begins.  Roads that lead to Cottonwood
  Campground and River Road may flood.  Stages are practically
  synonymous with the gage at Cottonwood Campground at Castolon
  (CSTT2), and therefore represent the reach from Santa Elena Canyon
  through Cottonwood Campground, where damage may occur.  Cattle also
  graze in the lowlands, and may be threatened.

This crest compares to a previous crest of 15.1 feet (4.6 meters) on
Jul 22 2013.
