western Pitkin County in central Colorado...
northeastern Delta County in west central Colorado...
southwestern Eagle County in central Colorado...
southeastern Garfield County in west central Colorado...
northeastern Mesa County in west central Colorado...

* Heavy rainfall from thunderstorms and heavy rainshowers has caused
multiple Road closures due to flooding and also some mudslides
which has also closed roads. Rainfall will continue through
midnight with some locally heavy downpours at times increasing
flooding risks.

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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
