Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:47 PM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Arkansas and Oklahoma... including the following
counties... in Arkansas... Benton... Carroll... Crawford...
Franklin... Madison... Sebastian and Washington AR. In
Oklahoma... Adair... Cherokee... Choctaw... Craig... creek...
Delaware... Haskell... Latimer... Le Flore... Mayes... McIntosh...
Muskogee... Nowata... Okfuskee... Okmulgee... Osage... Ottawa...
Pawnee... Pittsburg... Pushmataha... Rogers... Sequoyah... Tulsa...
Wagoner and Washington OK.

* Through Sunday morning

* widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches have already
fallen across parts of eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas... with some local amounts over 8 inches. Additional
rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue the
remainder of the afternoon and into the evening... with
additional heavy rainfall of 2 to 4 inches possible...
especially across southeast Oklahoma into northwest
Arkansas.

* The heavy rainfall has resulted in widespread flooding and
flash flooding across parts of northeast Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas. Several rivers will likely go into
moderate to major flood including the Illinois River and Lee
Creek at Van Buren. Beaver Lake Dam in northwest Arkansas
could begin to release water which would impact areas
downstream.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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. Persons living in low lying areas along main-Stem rivers
should monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to
higher ground.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road
to unknown depths. Take a different Route to reach your
destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember, most flood
related deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading
cause of weather related deaths.

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