* At 1230 PM EDT... Weather Service Doppler radar indicated very heavy
rain falling over interior sections of Martin County near Indiantown.
Additionally... storms in coastal northeast Palm Bach counties will
move north into the Tequesta and Hobe Sound areas of southeast Martin
County.

Radar indicates that 1 to 2 inches of rain will fall in a 60 to 90
minute period in some locations before the rain tapers off.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Advisory means heavy rainfall is causing or is likely to
cause ponding of water in urban areas and elevate river or stream
flows. Minor flooding may cause temporary Lane or Road closures...
but the threat of water entering homes and businesses is low.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause temporary flooding
of urban areas... such as highways... streets and intersections as
well as poor drainage areas and low lying spots.

Motorists should deactivate cruise control and slow down in heavy
rainfall to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Leave safe distance
between other 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. State law requires headlights to be
turned on when windshield wipers are in use.

To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.
