Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory

Posted: October 11, 2012 3:14 p.m.
Updated: October 11, 2012 3:14 p.m.
 

The Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory remains in effect until 400 PM PDT for...

At 1229 PM PDT... weather radar indicated several slow moving thunderstorms continued to provide heavy rain over south Kings County and northwest Kern County mainly west of Highway 43.

* The storms were moving to the west near 10 mph... and may produce locally heavy rain of half to one inch per hour resulting in local flooding.

* Runoff from these storms may produce flooding in the west side of the valley on I-5... and state highways 46 and 41. Drivers should exercise extra caution due to wet and slick roads.

* The threat of flooding may spread toward the mountains this afternoon as additional storms were developing over the Tulare County mountains and Tehachapi Mountains.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams... and ponding of water on country roads and farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground.
