...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SAN JUAN HAS ISSUED A

* FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR PUERTO RICO AND U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS.

* THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING

* THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING RAINFALL ACROSS PUERTO RICO
AND THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS AS TROPICAL STORM ERIKA MOVES ACROSS
THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN. RAINFALL FORECASTS OVER THE LOCAL AREA
ARE EXPECTED TO BE BETWEEN 4 AND 8 INCHES WITH ISOLATED MAXIMUMS
OF 12 INCHES POSSIBLE. DUE TO HEAVY RAINS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
WESTERN INTERIOR OF PUERTO RICO OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS...THEIR
SOILS ARE SUPER SATURATED...THEREFORE SIGNIFICANT FLOODING MAY
OCCUR IN THAT REGION. REGARDLESS OF THE ANTECEDENT SOIL
CONDITIONS...LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING AND LAND SLIDES ARE
POSSIBLE IN AREAS OF HIGH INTENSITY TROPICAL DOWNPOURS...WHICH
CAN OCCUR WITH TROPICAL STORM ERIKA.

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.

AREAS DE AGUACEROS MUY FUERTES...QUE PUDIERAN OCURRIR CON ESTA
TORMENTA TROPICAL ERIKA.

MEDIDAS DE PRECAUCION/PREPARACION...

UNA VIGILANCIA DE INUNDACIONES REPENTINAS SIGNIFICA QUE CONDICIONES
PUDIERAN DESARROLLARSE QUE RESULTARAN EN INUNDACIONES REPENTINAS.

TROPICAL SYSTEMS, CONSIDER VOLUNTARY EVACUATION, ESPECIALLY IF BEING
OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED. RELOCATE TO A PREDETERMINED SHELTER OR SAFE
DESTINATION.

IF EVACUATING AWAY FROM THE AREA OR RELOCATING TO A NEARBY SHELTER,
LEAVE EARLY BEFORE WEATHER CONDITIONS BECOME HAZARDOUS.

DO NOT RETURN TO EVACUATED AREAS UNTIL HAZARDOUS WINDS DIMINISH AND
FLOOD WATERS ABATE.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING TO COMPLETION ALL PREPARATIONS TO PROTECT
LIFE AND PROPERTY IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR EMERGENCY PLAN.

OUTSIDE PREPARATIONS SHOULD BE WRAPPED UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BEFORE

AND RELOCATIONS SHOULD BE EXPEDITED BEFORE THE ONSET OF TROPICAL
STORM FORCE WIND.

IF YOU ARE RELOCATING TO SAFE SHELTER, LEAVE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. IF
HEADING TO A COMMUNITY SHELTER, BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE SHELTER
RULES BEFORE ARRIVAL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS OR OWN A
PET. TAKE ESSENTIAL ITEMS WITH YOU FROM YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES KIT.
