rescues.
– Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in
multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos,
and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas,
destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while
increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides.
Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed.
– Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple
communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or
washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover
escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of

may result in injury. Move to safe shelter before the wind
becomes hazardous.

– Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with
damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few
buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door
failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.
Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.
– Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
fences and roadway signs blown over.
– Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within
urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,

being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
waters arrive.

morning

– CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Moderate
– The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
previous assessment.
– Remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
– To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
– Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
adequately shelter may result in injury. Remain sheltered
until the hazardous wind subsides.

– POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
– Potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.

* FLOODING RAIN
– LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect

recommended actions.

– POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Devastating to Catastrophic
– Extreme rainfall flooding may prompt numerous evacuations
and rescues.
– Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their
banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams,
creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging
rivers. In mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down
valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and
mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become
stressed.
– Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple
communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or
washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover
escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of
raging water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions
become very dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures
with some weakened or washed out.

impacts. Stay informed.
– Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
shelter.

– POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
– The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the
execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
– A few places may experience tornado damage, along with
power and communications disruptions.
– Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings,
chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or
overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off,
shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown
off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.
