additional rainfall will result in ponding of water in urban
areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other poor
drainage areas and low lying spots.
Excessive runoff from will cause flooding of small creeks and guts...
and low spots in highways. Additionally... roads and land along the
banks of creeks and streams and other low lying areas are subject to
flooding. Also... mudslides are possible in areas of steep terrain.
Motorists should exercise caution.
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.
