  Susquehanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania...
  Lackawanna County in northeastern Pennsylvania...
  Luzerne County in northeastern Pennsylvania...
  Wyoming County in northeastern Pennsylvania...

* Until 600 PM EDT.

* At 303 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
  thunderstorms moving into the Wyoming and Lackawanna Valleys. This
  will cause urban and small stream flooding in the advisory area.
  Some flooding has already been reported in Bradford county today.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Falls, Hazleton, Muhlenberg, Dunmore,
  Kingston, Nanticoke, Plains and Carbondale.

Excessive rainfall rates from thunderstorms will temporarily
overwhelm city storm drainage causing areas of ponding water and
minor flooding. Some of the more flood prone small creeks in the
area may fill up and flood rural areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
