Flash Flood Warning
Statement as of 3:14 AM CDT on May 24, 2015

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
Benton County in northwest Arkansas...
Crawford County in northwest Arkansas...
Washington County in northwest Arkansas...

* until 900 am CDT

* at 314 am CDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms with very heavy rain moving into the warned area. 2
to 3 inches of rainfall will be possible through 900 am.

* Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause flash flooding to
occur. Some locations that could experience flooding include...
Bentonville... Cedarville... Fayetteville... Mountainburg... Natural
Dam... Rogers... Siloam Springs... Springdale... Van Buren... Alma...
Bella Vista... Blackburn... Brentwood... Cave Springs... Chester...
Cincinnati... Decatur... Devils Den State Park... Drake Field
Airport... Dyer... Elkins... Farmington... Figure Five... Garfield...
Gateway... Gentry... Gravette... Greenland... Highfill and Hiwasse.

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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flash flooding is observed act quickly. Do
not enter the water. Turn around and move up to higher ground to
escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when
water begins rising.

subject to flooding... now is the time to prepare for dangerous
flooding.
