PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A flash flood watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is possible within the watch area. If you are in the watch area, keep informed, and be ready for quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is issued. Heavy rains flood roads and low lying areas rapidly. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road to unknown depths. Take a different route to reach your destination or wait until the water recedes. && $$
