Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 3:40 PM CDT on September 16, 2014

Expires 4:30 AM EDT on September 17, 2014

The National Weather Service in Brownsville has issued an

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
western Cameron County in deep south Texas.
Southeastern Hidalgo County in deep south Texas.

* Until 330 am CDT Wednesday

* at 337 PM CDT... river gauge data reported that the Arroyo
Colorado had reached 16.9 feet at Harlingen near Arroyo Park.
The Arroyo will continue to rise slowly this evening... cresting
near 17 feet at the gauge site later tonight before beginning to
decrease slowly Wednesday. The Arroyo is flowing over low water
crossings in portions of Cameron County... which will continue as
rain runoff drains into the Arroyo south of Mercedes... flowing
through La Feria and then into Harlingen.

However... if additional heavy rainfall occurs close to the Arroyo
Colorado tonight or Wednesday... additional rises in the water levels
could occur in the Arroyo later this week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the Road.
The water depth may be too great to allow you to cross safely.

Rapid rising streams or arroyos may exceed their banks. This will
cause minor flooding of nearby low lying areas. Move to higher

Don't become a statistic. Turn around... don't drown!
