dangers of flooding.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

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

* through Monday morning

* heavy rainfall enhanced by terrain will result in the threat of
flash flooding of arroyos and small streams. Urban flash
flooding will also be possible within cities and towns.

* Dont drive into areas where water covers the Road. The water may
be deeper than it appears and less than a foot of rushing water
can float many vehicles. If you encounter water flowing across a
roadway, turn around, don't drown.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
