Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 8:44 PM CDT on May 29, 2015

Expires 10:45 AM EDT on May 30, 2015


... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 945 am CDT Saturday for
north central Reno and Rice counties...

At 837 PM CDT... emergency management reported continued flooding of
rural roads across the County.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Lyons... Sterling... Nickerson... Little River... Chase... Bushton...
Geneseo... Alden... Raymond... WillowBrook... Frederick and silica.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
