Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 12:53 PM PST on March 01, 2015

Expires 3:00 PM EST on March 02, 2015


The National Weather Service in Phoenix has issued an

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
west central Imperial County in southeast California...
this includes the cities of... Plaster City... Ocotillo... Imperial...
el centro... Brawley...

* until 445 PM PST

* at 1247 PM PST moderate to heavy rain has occurred over the
advisory area since early this morning. Area gauges report at
least half an inch of rainfall so far... along with some locally
higher amounts nearing an inch since the rainfall started.
Additional rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall will continue
over the advisory area... providing additional storm runoff over
the area. This will cause normally dry washes to begin running
as well as ponding of water on roadways and low lying areas.

* Locations that may experience minor flooding include but are not
limited to... el centro and Imperial... locations along the Alamo
river drainage... locations along
state routes 78... 80... 86... 111.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Just one foot of flowing
water can be powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When
encountering flooded roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont
drown.

To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.

... Flood Watch in effect from noon today through Monday morning...

The National Weather Service in Phoenix has expanded the

* Flood Watch to include a portion of extreme southeast California...
including the following areas... in extreme southeast California...
Imperial County and Riverside County/eastern deserts.

* Through Monday morning

* showers will continue to overspread the area today with rainfall
continuing overnight and tapering off by late Monday morning. Some
isolated light showers are still possible Monday afternoon. Storm
total amounts will vary from one half to one inch with some spots
possibly as high as one and a quarter inches.

* Rainfall is expected to be sufficient to eventually produce
significant runoff in at least some of the normally dry washes
creating potentially dangerous conditions at unbridged crossings.
Other low lying flood prone areas will likely see some inundation.
Rural roads and portions of some highways including state routes
77... 78... and 111 will likely be affected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood
warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared
to take action should flooding develop.
