Flood Watch - Includes NE Park County

Post by ParkBull » Sat Aug 06, 2022 5:47 pm

...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

* WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible.

* WHERE...Urban corridor from the Wyoming border to the Palmer
Divide, including the Denver metro, and the foothills including
the Cameron Peak and Calwood burn scars.

* WHEN...From Sunday afternoon through Sunday evening.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
Flooding may occur in poor drainage and urban areas. Heavy rain
may impact recent burn areas, leading to flash flooding and debris
flows.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
- Strong thunderstorms may produce rainfall of 1 to 2 inches in
as little as 45 minutes, with locally higher storm totals
possible.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry gulches is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain.
