... Safety rules for flash floods...

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued by the National Weather
Service. In the interest of public safety, the following
safety rules are provided. Public and commercial broadcast
stations serving the affected area are asked to broadcast these
safety messages frequently while the watch is in effect.

As a reminder, a Flash Flood Watch means conditions in and close
to the watch area are favorable for the rapid development of
flooding. People who live in flood prone areas should carefully
monitor weather conditions and be prepared to take immediate
action should flooding begin to develop.

A Flash Flood Warning means flooding is occurring or imminent.
People in the warned area should take immediate action to save
lives and protect property.

Flash flooding causes more deaths annually than any other
weather related disaster. Most flash flood deaths occur in
automobiles. Never attempt to drive across flooded roadways.
Two feet of water can move most vehicles. If your vehicle is
caught in rapidly rising water, abandon it quickly and move
to higher ground.

Small streams, creeks, and rivers are potential killers
during heavy rains. Heavy rainfall can lead to rapid rises
pushing waterways out of their banks. Campers should avoid
camping along streams or creeks during threatening rains.
Also remember that the heavy rain may occur well upstream from
your immediate area. Never attempt to cross a flowing
stream, even a small one, on foot. If you are near a stream
and observe rapidly rising water, move to higher ground
immediately.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of flash floods. If flash flooding or rapidly
rising water is observed, move to higher ground immediately.
If you live in flood prone areas, be especially alert during
heavy rain. Flooding can often occur with little or no
warning.
