(MANHATTAN)...BRONX...SOUTHEASTERN BERGEN...ESSEX...RICHMOND (STATEN
ISLAND) AND HUDSON COUNTIES...

AT 521 PM EDT...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE STILL IN THE VICINITY 
AND SOME LOCATIONS HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED UP TO AROUND ONE AND A HALF 
INCHES OF RAINFALL. AN ADDITIONAL HALF INCH OF RAINFALL WILL BE 
POSSIBLE DURING THE WARNING PERIOD.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL 
CREEKS AND STREAMS...URBAN AREAS...HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES
AS WELL AS OTHER DRAINAGE AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. 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.
