Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 8:35 AM MDT on September 22, 2014

Expires 11:30 PM EDT on September 22, 2014


The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a

* hydrologic advisory for...
central Graham County in Southeast Arizona...
this includes the city of Safford...
central Greenlee County in Southeast Arizona...

* until 830 PM MST Monday

* at 828 am MST... heavy rains from overnight occurred just to the
east of the Clifton area. Estimates of over two and a half inches
were indicated by radar. Automated rain gauges in the area did
indicate amounts slightly over two inches. This morning at 645 am
MST... the flow on the Gila River south of the Clifton area indicated
a stage of 17.1 feet with a flow of nearly 11,000 cfs. This water
will continue to make its way down the Gila River and reach the
Safford and Pima areas later this afternoon or early this evening.
The forecast for the Gila River at Solomon is for it to rise to
slightly above bankfull which may impact the approaches to the
bridges. Motorists are therefore advised to be cautious when driving
in this area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
