Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 7:24 PM MDT Aug. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The flood advisory remains in effect until 815 PM MST for Gila and
Navajo counties...

At 717 PM MST, Doppler radar indicated areas of moderate rain moving
back into the Carrizo area, including the far northwest side of the
Cedar fire scar and Corduroy creek drainage. This will keep creeks
and washes running high for the next couple of hours. Stream gauge
data at Carrizo indicates that Carrizo creek crested around 630 PM
MST and had fallen by over one foot by 7 PM.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Carrizo and Fort Apache reservation.

This includes the following streams and drainages... Forestdale creek
and Corduroy creek.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where 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.

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.
