* until 830 PM CDT Tuesday

* at 832 PM CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms exiting the warned area... with some pockets of light
to moderate rain ongoing.

The heavy rainfall from the weekend into today has caused area
lakes... small creeks and streams... low water crossings and low lying
areas as well as the major rivers to flood. This flooding will
likely continue for much of this week. Area lakes are near or
slightly over full capacity. High releases are required and this may
flood the downstream river. Also... tributaries that feed into these
reservoirs will also back up and flood until lake levels get under
control.

* Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flooding to occur.
Some locations that could experience flooding include... Antlers...
Bentonville... Berryville... Cedarville... Charleston... Clayton...
Eufaula... Eureka Springs... Fayetteville... Fort Smith... Hugo...
Huntsville... Jay... McAlester... Miami... Mountainburg... Muskogee...
Natural Dam... Ozark... Poteau... Pryor... Rogers... Sallisaw... Siloam
Springs... Springdale... Stigler... Stilwell... Tahlequah... Van Buren
and Vinita.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road to
unknown depths. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away
most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.

... Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Latimer... Sequoyah...
Pushmataha... Pittsburg... southern Muskogee... McIntosh... Le Flore...
Haskell... Choctaw and western Crawford counties until midnight CDT...

At 647 PM CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms with very heavy rain over the warned area. 1 to 2
inches of rainfall has already occurred with an additional half inch
possible. This rain has fallen on nearly saturated ground... so the
heavy rain will quickly become runoff. Flash flooding is ongoing in
Leflore County based on reports.

Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to
occur. Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...
Antlers... Cedarville... Clayton... Eufaula... Hugo... McAlester... Natural
Dam... Poteau... Sallisaw... Stigler... Wilburton... Albion... Alderson...
Arkoma... Arrowhead State Park... Ashland... Bengal... Big Cedar...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road to
unknown depths. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away
most sport utility vehicles and pickups. Take a different Route to
reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember...
most flood related deaths occur in automobiles.

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