Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 5:28 PM MDT on September 18, 2014

Expires 8:30 AM EDT on September 19, 2014


The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a

* Flood Warning...
central Pima County in Southeast Arizona...

* until 530 am MST Friday

* at 524 PM MST... a gauge on the Vamori wash near the community of
Santa Cruz was reporting 9.3 feet. Bankfull is 8.5 feet and flood
stage is 9.5 feet. At this level Route 21 will be flooded where
it crosses the Vamori wash. The Vamori wash is forecast to rise
to 9.8 feet at this location and then slowly begin to recede. Due
to very saturated soil in the Vamori wash basin this will take at
least 9 to 12 hours before the Vamori wash rises and then falls
below flood stage near Santa Cruz.

* This Flood Warning is for the Vamori wash in central Pima County.
The Flood Warning extends from the community of Cowlic to Santa
Cruz... and then south to the international border near the
community of Papago Farms.

* This Flood Warning replaces the Flood Warning that was previously
in effect for central Pima County.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

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.

A Flood Warning means flooding is occurring or is imminent. Most
flood related deaths occur in automobiles. Do not attempt to cross
water covered bridges... dips... or low water crossings. Never try to
cross a flowing stream... even a small one... on foot. To escape rising
water move up to higher ground.
