Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:43 AM PDT on September 21, 2014

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on September 22, 2014

The National Weather Service in Elko has issued a

* small stream Flood Advisory for...
White Pine County in eastern Nevada...
this includes the cities of... Shoshone... schellbourne... Ruth...
Preston... McGill... Lund... lages Junction... Great Basin National
Park... Ely Airport... Ely... Cherry Creek... Baker...

* until 845 am PDT/945 am MDT/

* at 239 am PDT/339 am MDT/ an area of thunderstorms with moderate
to heavy rains was moving north out of southern Nevada toward White
Pine County. This complex of storms will produce briefly heavy rain
over a period of several hours. Local flooding is expected in small
streams... normally dry washes... and low spots. Even after the rain
stops in a place... runoff will continue for a time after. Do not
think that just because it quit raining... that the flooding is over.
It always floods after the rains stops.

Rocky terrain will be especially prone to flooding... and old burn
scars will allow rain to run rapidly off and make flooding worse.

Remember this simple rule... if you come to a flooded or closed
Road... turn around. Don't drown. In the dark you won't see the water
until you are in it.

rates and amounts from the strongest thunderstorms. Rainfall
amounts will average one quarter to one half inch for most
locales... with local amounts as high as 3 inches possible.

* Areas most prone to flash flooding include small creeks... dry
washes... and burn scars near steep mountainous terrain. Rock
slides and debris flows are possible in steep terrain... in
addition to erosion of gravel and dirt roads.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
