At 1129 AM EDT, stream gauges indicated that both Wilson Creek and North Toe River were in flood. Please be wary in these areas as water is likely covering roads in these drainage basins. Shower activity is expected to diminish across the warned area through early afternoon. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN. Runoff from heavy rain into creeks and streams will cause sudden increases in water levels and flows, even in areas where rainfall has been light or nonexistent. Hikers, campers and other individuals outdoors must immediately seek high ground and avoid all streams. && LAT...LON 3627 8189 3621 8190 3616 8183 3611 8181 3612 8155 3605 8139 3585 8165 3588 8171 3595 8178 3600 8190 3587 8200 3588 8202 3586 8204 3582 8213 3593 8215 3595 8220 3605 8219 3611 8213 3612 8203 3629 8192 $$
