THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SAN JUAN HAS ISSUED A

* FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR PUERTO RICO AND U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS.

  OCCUR IN THAT REGION. REGARDLESS OF THE ANTECEDENT SOIL
  CONDITIONS...LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING AND LAND SLIDES ARE
  POSSIBLE IN AREAS OF HIGH INTENSITY TROPICAL DOWNPOURS...WHICH
  CAN OCCUR WITH TROPICAL STORM ERIKA.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION
SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED.
