Illinois, Cook

Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 4:08 AM CDT on July 30, 2016

Expires 3:00 PM EDT on July 30, 2016


... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 200 PM CDT Saturday for
southern dupage... northeastern De Kalb... north central will... central
Kane and south central Cook counties...

At 400 am CDT... runoff from the 2 to 4 inches of rain which fell on
Friday continues to result in flooding with numerous roads reported
blocked by flood waters. DuPage County emergency management reports
significant impacts across southern DuPage County from 75th street
south. Although additional heavy rainfall is not expected early this
morning... scattered thunderstorms are once again possible across the
warned area by mid day today and this additional rainfall could
cause renewed rises in flood waters.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Aurora... Naperville... Bolingbrook... Orland Park... Wheaton...
Downers Grove... Lombard... Romeoville... St. Charles... Glen Ellyn...
West Chicago... Batavia... Westmont... Homer Glen... Lisle... Geneva...
Sycamore... Hinsdale... Lemont and La Grange.

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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 10:16 AM CDT on July 30, 2016

Expires 5:00 AM EDT on July 31, 2016


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through late
tonight...

* location... northeast Illinois beaches.

* Forecast wave heights... 3 to 5 feet.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with
protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the
orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.
