Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 10:22 AM CDT on April 28, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 30, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 7 PM CDT this evening
through Sunday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Arkansas and Oklahoma... including the following
counties... in Arkansas... Benton... Carroll... Crawford...
Franklin... Madison... Sebastian and Washington AR. In
Oklahoma... Adair... Cherokee... Choctaw... Craig... creek...
Delaware... Haskell... Latimer... Le Flore... Mayes... McIntosh...
Muskogee... Okfuskee... Okmulgee... Ottawa... Pittsburg...
Pushmataha... Rogers... Sequoyah... Tulsa and Wagoner.

* From 7 PM CDT this evening through Sunday morning

* a potent upper level storm system will move into the area
Friday with strong to severe thunderstorms developing by early
evening across portions of eastern Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas. Thunderstorms will continue Friday night through
Saturday evening with locally heavy rainfall as a frontal
boundary slowly pushes southeast. 4 to 6 inches of rainfall
are expected across east-central Oklahoma and northwest
Arkansas with locally higher amounts approaching 10 inches.

* The heavy rainfall will likely lead to widespread and
potentially life threatening flash flooding. Several rivers
will likely go into moderate to major flood including the
Illinois River and Lee Creek at Van Buren. Beaver Lake Dam in
northwest Arkansas could begin to release water which would
impact areas downstream.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you are in the watch area, keep informed, and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued. Persons living in low lying areas along main-Stem rivers
should monitor the latest forecast and be ready to evacuate to
higher ground.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road
to unknown depths. Take a different Route to reach your
destination or wait until the water recedes. Remember, most flood
related deaths occur in automobiles and flooding is the leading
cause of weather related deaths.

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.
