Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:39 AM CDT on April 27, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 30, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Friday evening through Sunday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Arkansas and Oklahoma...
including the following counties... in Arkansas... Benton...
Carroll... Crawford... Franklin... Madison... Sebastian and
Washington AR. In Oklahoma... Adair... Cherokee... Craig...
creek... Delaware... Haskell... Latimer... Le Flore... Mayes...
McIntosh... Muskogee... Okfuskee... Okmulgee... Ottawa...
Pittsburg... Pushmataha... Rogers... Sequoyah... Tulsa and
Wagoner.

* From Friday evening through Sunday morning

* a potent upper level storm system will move into the area Friday
with strong to severe thunderstorms developing by early evening
across portions of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
Thunderstorms will continue Friday night through Saturday evening
with locally heavy rainfall as a frontal boundary slowly pushes
southeast. 8 to 10 inches of rainfall is expected across east-central
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas with locally higher amounts
approaching 15 inches.

* The heavy rainfall will likely lead to widespread and potentially
life threatening flash flooding. Several rivers will likely go
into moderate to major flood including the Illinois River and Lee
Creek at Van Buren. Beaver Lake Dam in northwest Arkansas could
begin to release water which would impact areas downstream.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
Persons living in low lying areas along main-Stem rivers should
monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to higher
ground.

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. Remember, most flood related
deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading cause of
weather related deaths.

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.
