Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. 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 and move to higher ground.

Excessive rainfall can quickly turn dry desert washes and arroyos
into raging rivers... even in areas far from where rain has fallen. Do
not attempt to cross flooded arroyos. Swiftly moving water can carve
deep channels in previously shallow washes... and water can be much
deeper than it appears. If your Route becomes cut off by flooded
arroyos... wait for flood waters to recede.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to
carry vehicles away.
