* UNTIL 345 PM EDT WEDNESDAY

* AT 945 PM EDT RIVERS WERE RISING RAPIDLY DUE TO SNOW MELT AND
RAINFALL. NUMEROUS RIVERS WITHIN THE WARNED AREA ARE EXPECTED TO
REACH FLOOD STAGE LATER TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING. ICE JAMS ARE
POSSIBLE AND MAY CAUSE FLASH FLOODING. LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS ALREADY
REPORTED SOME MINOR FLOODING.

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS IMMEDIATELY.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM RAPID SNOW MELT AND RAINFALL WILL CAUSE
ELEVATED LEVELS ON RIVERS...SMALL STREAMS AND PONDING OF WATER ON
COUNTRY ROADS AND FARMLAND ALONG THE BANKS OF BROOKS AND STREAMS.
FLOODING MAY DAMAGE ROADS AND CREATE SERIOUS HAZARDS TO MOTORISTS.

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.

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODING. IF FLOODING IS OBSERVED ACT QUICKLY. MOVE UP TO
HIGHER GROUND TO ESCAPE FLOOD WATERS. DO NOT STAY IN AREAS SUBJECT TO
FLOODING WHEN WATER BEGINS RISING.
