...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
845 AM EDT FOR SOUTHERN HERKIMER...WESTERN FULTON...NORTHWESTERN
SCHOHARIE...WESTERN MONTGOMERY AND SOUTH CENTRAL HAMILTON COUNTIES...

AT 433 AM EDT...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR CONTINUED     
TO SHOW AREAS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN TRAINING ACROSS THE          
ADVISORY AREA. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL OF HALF AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A 
HALF IS EXPECTED DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE OVERNIGHT INTO EARLY 
THIS MORNING. THIS WILL BE ENOUGH RAINFALL TO CAUSE FLOODING OF 
POORLY DRAINED LOW LYING AREAS AS WELL AS SOME URBAN FLOODING WHERE 
STORM DRAINS BACK UP.

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.
