Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 7:25 PM MDT on July 06, 2015

... The Flood Advisory for minor flooding in poor drainage areas
remains in effect until 845 PM MDT for central Sweetwater County...

At 721 PM MDT... Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
heavy rain has fallen in and around Rock Springs and Superior. The
Rock Springs Airport received 0.78 inches of rain in about 30
minutes... with about 0.50 inches occurring in about 10 minutes. This
torrential rainfall in a short amount of time will cause flooding in
streets... especially in low lying or poor drainage areas. Also
Interstate 80 between Rock Springs and Bitter Creek will have
significant ponding of water... which will increase the chance of
hydroplaning.

This includes Interstate 80 between mile markers 98 and 125.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water in urban areas...
highways... streets and underpasses as well as other poor drainage
areas and low lying spots.
