deadly lightning and very heavy rain. For your protection... move to
an interior room on the lowest floor of your home or business. Heavy
rains flood roads quickly so do not drive into areas where water
covers the Road.

In addition to large hail and damaging winds... continuous cloud to
ground lightning is occurring with this storm. Move indoors
immediately. Lightning is one of natures leading killers. Remember...
if you can hear thunder... you are close enough to be struck by
lightning.

The National Weather Service in Ruskin has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Lee County in southwestern Florida...
eastern Charlotte County in southwestern Florida...

* until 815 PM EDT

* at 617 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to

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.
