Statement as of 3:39 PM PDT on July 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on July 05, 2015


The National Weather Service in Elko has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
north central Elko County in northeastern Nevada...

* until 630 PM PDT

* at 337 PM PDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Mountain City... Owyhee... Wild Horse Reservoir and Sheep Creek
Reservoir.

Additional rainfall of up to one inch is expected over the area.
This additional rain will create minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as dirt roads. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated... or
ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.
