The National Weather Service in Tucson has extended the
* Flood Warning for... western Santa Cruz County in Southeast Arizona...
* until 430 PM MST
* at 122 PM MST the river gauge along the Santa Cruz river near Tubac indicated a level just shy of 27 feet...which is nearly a foot above bankfull. The river was approaching its crest but will remain above bankfull until 3 or 4 PM.
* At these levels...some overflow of the Santa Cruz river onto lowlands is possible...mainly on the west side of The Channel. Farther upstream...the higher flows have already begun to subside and should continue to do so this afternoon.
A Flood Warning means flooding is occurring or is imminent. Most flood related deaths occur in automobiles. Do not attempt to cross water covered bridges...dips...or low water crossings. Never try to cross a flowing stream...even a small one...on foot. To escape rising water move up to higher ground.
