* UNTIL 915 PM EDT TUESDAY

* AT 915 AM EDT AROUND AN INCH OF RAIN HAS FALLEN ACROSS LEWIS       
  COUNTY. THIS COMBINED WITH SNOW MELT HAS RESULTED IN FLOODING      
  ALONG MANY CREEKS AND RIVERS ACROSS LEWIS COUNTY.

  UNNECESSARY TRAVEL SHOULD BE AVOIDED. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL...BE      
  ALERT FOR FLOODED AND CLOSED ROADWAYS.

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
HOWEVER...ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
IMMEDIATELY.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
