Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall is causing some flooding of
small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and
underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

It is important to know where you are relative to streams, rivers,
or creeks which can become killers in heavy rains. Campers and
hikers should avoid streams or creeks.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
