most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.

Low water crossings in hilly terrain are especially dangerous in
heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find
alternate routes.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warning area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property. Do not attempt to cross
swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth by foot or by
automobile.

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

lakes... especially Eufaula... Wister... Sardis and Hugo.

hours. Another round of more widespread thunderstorms with
heavy rainfall associated with a cold front will impact the
area later tonight through Saturday. Additional 1 to 2 inch
rainfall amounts are likely across most of the area... with
local amounts of 3 to 5 inches possible. The higher rainfall
amounts that occur over already saturated ground will lead to
localized flash flooding.

The heavy rainfall from the past week has caused area lakes...
small creeks and streams... low water crossings and low lying
areas as well as the major rivers to flood. This flooding will
likely continue through the weekend. Many area lakes are near or
slightly over full capacity. High releases are required and this
may flood the downstream river. Also... tributaries that feed into
these reservoirs will back up and flood until lake levels get
under control.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the
Road... the Road may be washed out underneath the rushing water.
Take a different Route to reach your destination or wait until
the water recedes.

If you are in the watch area... keep informed... and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued. Have a means of receiving any warnings issued overnight
such as a weather radio.
