Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 11:33 PM CDT on May 23, 2015

The National Weather Service in Brownsville has issued a

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
western Hidalgo County in deep south Texas...
Jim Hogg County in deep south Texas...
northeastern Zapata County in deep south Texas...
western Brooks County in deep south Texas...
eastern Starr County in deep south Texas...

* until 130 am CDT

* at 1131 PM CDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause Arroyo and Small Stream flooding in
the advisory area. Up to one inch of rain has already fallen.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
McAllen... Los Ebanos... McCook... La Joya High School... La Joya city
Hall... Hebbronville... Agua Nueva... Hebbronville High School...
Penitas... Sullivan City... La Joya... La Grulla... Garciasville... San
Rafael ranch Airport... San Isidro... doffing... Puerto Rico... Lorenzo
de Zavala Middle School... Citrus City and Sam Fordyce Elementary
School.

Additional rainfall of 1 to 2 inches is expected over the area. This
additional rain will make minor flooding.

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.

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. Move to higher ground.

727 PM CDT Sat may 23 2015

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from midnight CDT tonight
through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of deep south Texas... including the following
areas... Brooks... coastal Cameron... coastal Willacy... Hidalgo...
   inland Cameron... inland Willacy... Jim Hogg... Kenedy... Starr
and Zapata.

* From midnight CDT tonight through Sunday morning

* showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop late tonight
into Sunday morning and move across areas that have received
excessive rainfall over the past couple of weeks. Rainfall
amounts of 1 to 3 inches can be expected with isolated amounts
up to 4 inches. This will result in rapid runoff and
inundation of already flooded regions.

* Due to the very moist conditions of the grounds and soils in
the area... rapid flash flooding will be possible where heavy
rains develop.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means that flooding is possible during the next
24 to 36 hours. Residents living in flood prone areas should take
action to protect property.

Residents... particularly those in flood prone areas... as well as
those living near small streams and creeks... should be prepared
to move to higher ground.

If possible... clear drainage systems of any debris which may
become clogged in flooding rains.
