Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 1:42 PM CDT on September 16, 2014

Expires 3:45 PM EDT on September 16, 2014


The National Weather Service in Lake Charles has issued an

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for minor flooding of poor
drainage areas in...
eastern Calcasieu Parish in southwest Louisiana...
this includes the cities of... Lake Charles Regional Airport...
Westlake... Moss Bluff... Lake Charles...

* until 245 PM CDT

* at 140 PM CDT Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with heavy
rainfall rates in excess of one inch per hour across Lake Charles
and surrounding communities.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall may cause flooding of land
adjacent to small creeks and bayous. Additionally... frontage roads...
Highway underpasses... farm-to-Market and other secondary roads may
flood.

Turn around... don't drown... most flood deaths occur in automobiles.
Never drive your vehicle into areas where the 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... dont drown.

... Tropical funnel clouds possible...

The National Weather Service has received a couple of reports of
funnel clouds across southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana.

A very moist and unstable tropical airmass is in place across the
area. Meanwhile... the vertical wind profile over the area is light
and variable. These conditions are favorable for the development
of tropical funnel clouds... especially where rain cooled
boundaries... known as outflow boundaries... and the seabreeze
collide.

These tropical funnel clouds are usually short-lived and rarely
reach the ground. If The Funnel cloud becomes more severe and
does reach the ground... minor damage may occur.

Stay tuned for later statements and updates on this weather
situation.
