Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 5:23 AM EDT on August 03, 2015

The National Weather Service in Ruskin has issued a

* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
western Pasco County in west central Florida...

* until 1130 am EDT Monday

* at 523 am EDT... Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
thunderstorms with heavy rain over the area. That rain will cause
flooding. Up to three inches of rain have already fallen.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
New Port Richey... Hudson... Holiday... Lutz... Jasmine estates... New
Port Richey east... Beacon Square... Land O' Lakes... Land O Lakes...
Keystone... East Lake... Trinity... Moon Lake... Shady Hills... Bayonet
Point... Odessa... Elfers... Jay b Starkey Wilderness Park... gowers
corner and cheval.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

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