Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 12:52 PM PDT on September 21, 2014

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on September 22, 2014

The National Weather Service in Elko has issued an

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
southern Eureka County in north central Nevada...
southeastern Lander County in north central Nevada
north central Nye County in south central Nevada...
this includes the city of Manhattan...

* until 345 PM PDT

* at 1249 PM PDT Doppler radar indicated scattered slow-moving
thunderstorms over southern Eureka and northern Nye
counties... moving slowly north. Radar estimates over one inch of
rain has fallen from the strongest storms over the last hour.
Normally dry streams and washes will experience rapid rises.
Localized flooding of low-lying areas if likely.

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.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

* Through this evening

* widespread rain and thunderstorms are expected across central

for efficient rainfall production... with excessive rainfall
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
should flash flood warnings be issued.
