Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 7:03 PM CDT on July 06, 2015

... Flood Advisory remains in effect for Randall and southern Potter
counties until 1000 PM CDT...

* at 701 PM CDT... National Weather Service meteorologists detected
a thunderstorm with very heavy rainfall over northern Amarillo.
Doppler radar estimates 1 to 2 inches of rain have already
fallen over parts of the advisory area in the past 2 hours with
additional heavy rain expected. Flooding is likely to occur.
While precipitation may taper off in some areas... it will take
some time for any high water to runoff.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
canyon... Amarillo... Umbarger...
Palo Duro Canyon... Lake Tanglewood... Buffalo Lake...
Bushland... Timbercreek Canyon...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will result in flooding of many
streets across the city of Amarillo... especially in poor drainage
areas. Motorists are urged to avoid flooded roadways as the high
water levels... up to several feet deep in some instances... may cause
cars to stall and pose a hazard to public safety.

The low water crossings at Palo Duro Canyon are likely to be flooded
and extremely dangerous. Do not attempt to travel across flooded
roads. It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry
vehicles away. Campers and hikers should seek higher ground.
