Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 5:27 PM CDT on May 22, 2015

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has extended the

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Sequoyah County in east central Oklahoma...
Choctaw County in southeast Oklahoma...
Haskell County in southeast Oklahoma...
Latimer County in southeast Oklahoma...
Le Flore County in southeast Oklahoma...
southern McIntosh County in southeast Oklahoma...
Pittsburg County in southeast Oklahoma...
Pushmataha County in southeast Oklahoma...

* until 930 PM CDT

* at 522 PM CDT... Doppler radar indicated showers and a few
thunderstorms with moderate rain over much of southeast
Oklahoma... moving east at 30 mph.

* Locations that will continue to be affected by heavy rain
include... much of southeast Oklahoma along and south of
Interstate 40.

Excessive runoff from this rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... highways and underpasses.
Additionally... country roads and farmlands along the banks of creeks
and streams and other low lying areas are subject to flooding.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Vehicles caught in rising water should be abandoned quickly.
Move to higher ground.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central Oklahoma... northeast Oklahoma and
southeast Oklahoma... including the following areas... in east
central Oklahoma... Cherokee... Muskogee... Okfuskee and
Sequoyah. In northeast Oklahoma... Adair... Craig... creek...
Delaware... Mayes... Nowata... Okmulgee... Osage... Ottawa...
Pawnee... Rogers... Tulsa... Wagoner and Washington. In southeast
Oklahoma... Choctaw... Haskell... Latimer... Le Flore... McIntosh...
   Pittsburg and Pushmataha.

* Through Monday morning

* several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected during
the watch period... with lighter rains tonight through early
Saturday becoming more widespread and heavy Saturday afternoon
through Sunday night.

* Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches will be common this weekend
through Monday morning... with locally higher amounts approaching
9 inches possible. The heaviest totals are likely to remain west
of a line from Miami Oklahoma to Hugo Oklahoma.
However... widespread flash flooding is likely to occur across
much of eastern Oklahoma given the saturated soils.

Saturday night and Sunday may yield a particularly dangerous
flood situation.

Anyone who has outdoor activities or travel planned over the
coming Holiday weekend should closely monitor conditions for
possible closures of roads and recreational areas... and plan
accordingly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

If you are in the watch area... keep informed... and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued.

If you live near... or travel across a stream... creek or river
often subject to flooding... now is the time to prepare for
dangerous flooding.
