Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 10:28 AM EST on November 24, 2014

Expires 1:36 AM EST on November 26, 2014


... The Flood Warning remains in effect until 415 PM EST for Erie...
northern Chautauqua... Wyoming... southern Genesee and northwestern
Cattaraugus counties...

Temperatures will warm into the lower to mid 60s through this
afternoon. While rainfall over the past 24 hours has only amounted
to less than a quarter across the areas that received the heaviest
snowfall over the last week... there remains a considerable amount of
water locked up in the remaining snowpack and the rate of snow melt
will intensify with the rising temperatures so that significant
melting of the water laden snow pack will lead to areas of flooding.
Meanwhile the potential for ice jam flooding has likely ended.

Residents near creeks are urged to take precautions to prepare for
possible flooding now... including moving items from basements.

Since many storm drains are snow clogged... many urban areas will
likely experience flooding with several feet of water possibly
accumulating on some stretches of Road. Some residential basements
will flood. The threat for structural failure will increase through
this afternoon.

In addition... wind speeds will continue to increase this afternoon
and tonight. These winds will bring down some trees and power
lines... possibly causing scattered power outages. This will also
cause sump pumps to fail.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water in urban areas...
highways... streets and underpasses as well as other poor drainage
areas and low lying spots.

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.

High Wind Warning

Statement as of 9:57 AM EST on November 24, 2014

Expires 4:00 AM EST on November 25, 2014


... High Wind Warning remains in effect from 1 PM this afternoon
to 4 am EST Tuesday...

* locations... Niagara... Orleans... Genesee... Monroe... Wyoming and
northern Erie counties.

* Timing... early this afternoon through late tonight.

* Winds... southwest 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph.

* Impacts... winds of this magnitude could bring down some trees
and power lines resulting in scattered power outages. Due to
the recent melting of the past weeks heavy snow... an
unfrozen... saturated ground will make it easier for some
trees to be toppled... especially shallow rooted pines. These
winds will also make difficult travel for high profile
vehicles. In addition... Holiday decorations could be damaged
and other loose outdoor items such as trash cans could be
blown away.

Power outages could also exacerbate flooding concerns for those
with flooded basements as sump pumps would not work without an
emergency... generator power supply.
