Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 9:50 PM CDT on April 01, 2015

Expires 11:30 PM EDT on April 01, 2015


... A Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams remains in
effect until 1030 PM CDT for north central Jim Wells County...

At 946 PM CDT... local law enforcement reported that some roads...
including CR 227 are now passable. However... some of the roads
between U.S. 281... midway and Orange Grove may have water on them.
Do not drive into areas where water covers the Road... especially at
night.

This includes the following streams and drainages... Nueces River...
quinta creek... chiltipin creek... Petronila creek... Tecolote creek...
Agua Dulce creek... Sandy Hollow creek... Leon creek... longoria
creek... el Caro creek... ruces creek... javalina creek... Lagarto
creek... javelin creek and Amargosa creek.

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... don't drown.

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