551 PM EDT TUE AUG 5 2014

...A FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 715 PM EDT FOR
SOUTHEASTERN WYOMING...SOUTHWESTERN LIVINGSTON AND NORTHERN ALLEGANY
COUNTIES...

AT 548 PM EDT...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR CONTINUED TO 
INDICATE THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCING FLASH FLOODING OVER THE WARNED 
AREA. FLOODING CAN STILL OCCUR EVEN AFTER THE HEAVY RAIN HAS 
ENDED.

EXPECT SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS IN THE AREA TO ALSO RISE NEAR AND 
POSSIBLY OVER BANKFULL. STREAMS AND CREEKS WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO 
RISE EVEN AFTER THE HEAVY RAINFALL HAS ENDED.  

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

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.
