Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 1:34 AM MDT on September 18, 2014

Expires 4:30 PM EDT on September 18, 2014

The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
western Santa Cruz County in Southeast Arizona...

* until 130 PM MST Thursday

* at 127 am MST heavy rainfall across Santa Cruz County and extremely
heavy rainfall in excess of 5 inches across northern Mexico is
expected to cause bankfull to flooding conditions along the Santa
Cruz river from the international border to Tubac. Areas along
and near the Santa Cruz river are at risk. At 130am MST the
gauge near the international border was over bankfull at 9.3 feet
with a flow of about 11,000 cfs. Historically this will cause
minor flooding near Tubac... however extremely heavy flow from the
Nogales wash may add to this.

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
rivers... creeks... and washes. Areas near rivers and washes may be
prone to flooding as well as other poor drainage areas.
