* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Orange County in southeastern Texas...
Jefferson County in southeastern Texas...
southeastern Hardin County in southeastern Texas...

* until 100 PM CDT

* at 956 am CDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain producing
thunderstorms entering the advisory area moving north at 25 mph.
Rainfall rates of 2 to 4 inches an hour are occurring with these
storms. This will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding in the

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.
