553 PM MDT FRI AUG 1 2014

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PUEBLO HAS ISSUED A

* FLOOD ADVISORY FOR...
AREAS IN AND NEAR THE WEST FORK BURN SCAR COMPLEX IN EAST CENTRAL
MINERAL COUNTY IN SOUTH CENTRAL COLORADO...

* UNTIL 845 PM MDT

* AT 548 PM MDT...DOPPLER RADAR AND AUTOMATED RAIN GAUGES INDICATED
HEAVY RAIN DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS. THIS MAY CAUSE FLOODING IN THE
ADVISORY AREA. 0.50 INCHES OF RAIN HAVE FALLEN OVER PARTS OF THE
BURN SCAR ACCORDING TO THE UPPER GOOSE CREEK AUTOMATED RAIN GAGE.

* FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR THE BURN SCAR DRAINING INTO
GOOSE CREEK AND ALSO ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE SCAR DRAINING TOWARD
THE SOUTH FORK OF THE RIO GRANDE.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

JUST A SMALL AMOUNT OF RAINFALL ON A BURN SCAR CAN LEAD TO FLASH
FLOODING. WATER THAT IS NORMALLY ABSORBED BY THE SOILS AND
VEGETATION...RUNS OFF ALMOST INSTANTLY. THIS CAUSES CREEKS AND
DRAINAGE AREAS TO FLOOD AT A MUCH FASTER RATE THAN NORMAL. IN
ADDITION...THE SOILS IN A BURN SCAR BECOME UNSTABLE WHEN IT RAINS...
SOMETIMES RESULTING IN DEBRIS AND FALLING ROCK. ROADS CAN BE WASHED
OUT BY THE FORCE OF THE RUSHING WATER AND DEBRIS.

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.
