Flash Flood Watch


... Flash Flood Watch in effect through Friday morning...

The National Weather Service in San Juan has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

* Through Friday morning

* there is a potential for flooding rainfall across Puerto Rico
and the U.S. Virgin Islands as Tropical Storm Erika moves across
the eastern Caribbean. Rainfall forecasts over the local area
are expected to be between 4 and 8 inches with isolated maximums
of 12 inches possible. Due to heavy rains across portions of the
western interior of Puerto Rico over the past few weeks... their
soils are super saturated... therefore significant flooding may
occur in that region. Regardless of the antecedent soil
conditions... localized flash flooding and land slides are
possible in areas of high intensity tropical downpours... which
can occur with Tropical Storm Erika.

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.
