Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:10 PM MDT on July 28, 2014

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on July 29, 2014


... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 445 PM MDT for
northwestern Custer and southwestern Fremont counties...

At 409 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated only light rain falling in
the advisory area. However... heavy rain this afternoon has likely
lead to some minor flooding in the advisory area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include... the Duckett
burn scar... and the Cotopaxi... Coaldale and hillside areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Just a small amount of rainfall on a burn scar can lead to flash
flooding. Water that is normally absorbed by the soils and
vegetation... runs off almost instantly. This causes creeks and
drainage areas to flood at a much faster rate than normal. In
addition... the soils in a burn scar become unstable when it rains...
sometimes resulting in debris and Falling Rock. Roads can be washed
out by the force of the rushing water and debris.
