1028 AM EST MON NOV 24 2014



...THE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 415 PM EST FOR ERIE...
NORTHERN CHAUTAUQUA...WYOMING...SOUTHERN GENESEE AND NORTHWESTERN
CATTARAUGUS COUNTIES...

TEMPERATURES WILL WARM INTO THE LOWER TO MID 60S THROUGH THIS 
AFTERNOON. WHILE RAINFALL OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS HAS ONLY AMOUNTED 
TO LESS THAN A QUARTER ACROSS THE AREAS THAT RECEIVED THE HEAVIEST 
SNOWFALL OVER THE LAST WEEK...THERE REMAINS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF 
WATER LOCKED UP IN THE REMAINING SNOWPACK AND THE RATE OF SNOW MELT 
WILL INTENSIFY WITH THE RISING TEMPERATURES SO THAT SIGNIFICANT 
MELTING OF THE WATER LADEN SNOW PACK WILL LEAD TO AREAS OF FLOODING. 
MEANWHILE THE POTENTIAL FOR ICE JAM FLOODING HAS LIKELY ENDED.

RESIDENTS NEAR CREEKS ARE URGED TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO PREPARE FOR 
POSSIBLE FLOODING NOW...INCLUDING MOVING ITEMS FROM BASEMENTS.  

SINCE MANY STORM DRAINS ARE SNOW CLOGGED...MANY URBAN AREAS WILL 
LIKELY EXPERIENCE FLOODING WITH SEVERAL FEET OF WATER POSSIBLY 
ACCUMULATING ON SOME STRETCHES OF ROAD. SOME RESIDENTIAL BASEMENTS 
WILL FLOOD. THE THREAT FOR STRUCTURAL FAILURE WILL INCREASE THROUGH 
THIS AFTERNOON.

IN ADDITION...WIND SPEEDS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON 
AND TONIGHT. THESE WINDS WILL BRING DOWN SOME TREES AND POWER 
LINES...POSSIBLY CAUSING SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES. THIS WILL ALSO 
CAUSE SUMP PUMPS TO FAIL.  

A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED.
STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW AND FLASH FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
HOWEVER...ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS
IMMEDIATELY.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER IN URBAN AREAS...
HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS OTHER POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.

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.

TREES TO BE TOPPLED...ESPECIALLY SHALLOW ROOTED PINES. THESE 
WINDS WILL ALSO MAKE DIFFICULT TRAVEL FOR HIGH PROFILE 
VEHICLES. IN ADDITION... HOLIDAY DECORATIONS COULD BE DAMAGED 
AND OTHER LOOSE OUTDOOR ITEMS SUCH AS TRASH CANS COULD BE 
BLOWN AWAY.
