PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS. IF FLASH FLOODING IS
OBSERVED...ACT QUICKLY. MOVE UP TO ESCAPE FLOOD WATERS.

DONT DRIVE INTO AREAS WHERE WATER COVERS THE ROAD. THE WATER MAY
BE DEEPER THAN IT APPEARS AND LESS THAN A FOOT OF RUSHING WATER
CAN FLOAT MANY VEHICLES. IF YOU ENCOUNTER WATER FLOWING ACROSS A
ROADWAY...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.
