... The small stream Flood Advisory remains in effect until 415 PM MDT
for central La Plata and east central Montezuma counties...

thunderstorms. This will cause small stream flooding in the advisory
area. An inch or more of rain has already fallen.

This advisory includes the following streams and drainages...
Junction creek... La Plata river... Buck Creek... Cherry Creek...
Deadwood creek... roaring Forks creek... east Mancos river... Little

Creek... Castle Creek... Clear Creek... basin creek... Hermosa creek...
Cottonwood Creek... no Buck Creek... Long Hollow... Lewis Creek...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause minor flooding of
small creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

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.

To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.
