Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Do not cross moving water on roadways... bridges... and at low
water crossings. Road surfaces and culverts can be washed out.

Turn around... dont drown when encountering flooded roads. Most
flood deaths occur in vehicles attempting to cross in high water.
