... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 445 PM PDT for
southern Washoe... west central Lyon... north central Douglas and
Storey counties and Carson City...

At 254 PM PDT... Doppler radar indicated moderate rainfall continues
to occur. Flash flooding is occurring or expected to begin shortly
with the main threat from Moundhouse to Dayton.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...

will be closed due to the heavy rainfall and travel is not
recommended.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. A few inches of fast flowing water is
powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the Road.

Move to higher ground now. Act quickly to protect your life.
