Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 5:07 PM MDT on May 24, 2015

Expires 8:45 PM EDT on May 24, 2015


... The Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory remains in effect until
645 PM MDT for northwestern Prowers and northeastern bent counties...

At 501 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain over eastern
portions of the advisory area. Heavy rain earlier in western
portions of the advisory area. Standing water and minor flooding of
roadways and low lying area can be expected.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Lamar... Wiley... McClave... John Martin Reservoir and Caddoa.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
