* Numerous roads are closed due to high water within the warning
area. Nearly all streams... creeks and rivers are in flood or will
flood, some at record levels. Anyone living in a low lying area or
locations prone to flooding should move to higher ground if you
have not already done so. Be prepared for high water on roads and
do not attempt to drive through these areas. Find alternate routes
and stay on main roads if possible. Flooding is difficult to see
at night! Flood waters will be slow to recede and it may take
several days in some locations.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles. Be especially cautious at night when it is
harder to recognize the dangers of flooding.
