FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
1016 AM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

...The National Weather Service in Midland has issued a flood warning
for the following rivers in Texas...

  Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch affecting Brewster County

Heavy rainfall along with continued releases
from Luis Leon Resevoir is expected to cause rises along
the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch, with the river reaching
flood stage of 15.0 ft by noon Monday. The river is forecast
to remain in flood stage through the forecast period.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Motorists are urged to heed flood warnings, and exercise caution if
traveling through this area.  Vehicle-related fatalities are the
number one source of flood fatalities in West Texas and New Mexico.
If you encounter a flooded stretch of roadway, do not attempt to
cross it.  You and your vehicle could be swept downstream in rushing
floodwaters.  Turn around, don`t drown!

River levels are high.  Ranchers and farmers should move livestock
and machinery out of flood-prone areas if time permits.

Keep in mind that any additional rainfall across the area could
significantly change the present forecast stage.

Additional information is available at:  www.weather.gov/midland

The next statement will be issued

1016 AM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

The National Weather Service in  has issued a

* Flood Warning for
  the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch.
* from Monday afternoon until further notice, or until the warning is
  cancelled.
* At  9AM Saturday the stage was 14.3 feet (4.4 meters).
* flooding is forecast.
* Flood stage is 15.0 feet (4.6 meters).
* Forecast...Rise above flood stage by Monday early afternoon and
  continue to rise to near 15.6 feet (4.8 meters) by Wednesday early
  afternoon.
* Impact...At 15.0 feet (4.6 meters), flood stage is reached.
  Moderate lowland flooding begins.  Roads that lead to Cottonwood
  Campground and River Road may flood.  Stages are practically
  synonymous with the gage at Cottonwood Campground at Castolon
  (CSTT2), and therefore represent the reach from Santa Elena Canyon
  through Cottonwood Campground, where damage may occur.  Cattle also
  graze in the lowlands, and may be threatened.

This crest compares to a previous crest of 15.1 feet (4.6 meters) on
Jul 22 2013.
