San Bernardino CA-Riverside CA-
424 PM PST FRI JAN 20 2017

The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
San Bernardino County in southern California...
Riverside County in southern California...

* Until 700 PM PST

* At 423 PM PST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
heavy rain which will continue to cause urban and small stream
flooding in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will likely experience flooding include...
San Bernardino, Moreno Valley, Temecula, Redlands, Lake Elsinore,
Yucaipa, northwestern Palm Springs, Hwy 243 Between Banning And
Idyllwild, Hemet, Mt San Jacinto State Park, Murrieta, Perris,
Highland, Colton, Cathedral City, San Jacinto, Beaumont, Banning,
Desert Hot Springs and Loma Linda.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
Excessive rainfall over the Whitewater basin is expected to result in
significant flows through the Coachella storm water channel. This
could inundate low-water crossings and possibly create dangerous
swift water stretches.

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

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.

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.
