  are saturated and the addition of these rainfall totals would
  cause runoff leading to flooding of low lying and poorly drained
  areas.

* Flooding of low lying and flood prone areas is possible with
  localized flash flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Do not enter or cross flowing water or water of unknown depth.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.
