Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 8:16 PM MDT on August 01, 2014

Expires 11:30 PM EDT on August 01, 2014


The National Weather Service in Pueblo has issued a

* small stream Flood Advisory for...
central Huerfano County in southeast Colorado... northeastern
Costilla County in south central Colorado... including the old Malo
Vega burn scar adjacent to Highway 160 near La Veta Pass.

* Until 1115 PM MDT

* at 812 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that may cause
small stream flooding in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
La Veta... farisita... Fort Garland and La Veta Pass.

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.

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. Move to higher ground.

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.

636 PM MDT Fri Aug 1 2014

The National Weather Service in Pueblo has issued a

* small stream Flood Advisory for...
southwestern Las Animas County in southeast Colorado...

* until 930 PM MDT

* at 632 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This may cause flooding of small streams... low
water crossings and any other low lying areas in the advisory area.

* Some locations that may experience flooding include...
Cokedale... Boncarbo... Stonewall... Segundo and Weston.

Rainfall of up to 1 inch or more is expected over parts of the area.
This rain may result in flooding of small streams... low water
crossings and any other low lying areas that transport or collect
water when heavy rain occurs.

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 may cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

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. Move to higher ground.
