Flood Warning
National Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
1011 AM CDT Mon May 22 2017

...The National Weather Service in Midland has issued a flood warning
for the following rivers in Texas...

  Rio Grande at Boquillas-Rio Grande Village affecting Brewster
  County

.Thunderstorms producing very heavy rainfall Sunday resulted in
rapid river rises on the Rio Grande and tributaries in the Big Bend
area over the past few hours. Rain gauges and radar indicate that 3-4
inches of rain fell in some areas.  As a result, the Rio Grande is
above expected to rise into minor flood late this morning, then fall
below flood stage by late afternoon.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Motorists are urged to heed flood warnings, and exercise caution if
traveling through this area.  Vehicle-related fatalities are the
number one source of flood fatalities in West Texas and New Mexico.
If you encounter a flooded stretch of roadway, do not attempt to
cross it.  You and your vehicle could be swept downstream in rushing
floodwaters.  Turn around, don`t drown!

River levels are high.  Ranchers and farmers should move livestock
and machinery out of flood-prone areas if time permits.

Keep in mind that any additional rainfall across the area could
significantly change the present forecast stage.

Additional information is available at:  www.weather.gov/midland

The next statement will be issued this afternoon.

The Flood Warning continues for
  the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch.

  Moderate lowland flooding begins.  Roads that lead to Cottonwood

  synonymous with the gage at Cottonwood Campground at Castolon
  (CSTT2), and therefore represent the reach from Santa Elena Canyon
  through Cottonwood Campground, where damage may occur.  Cattle also
  graze in the lowlands, and may be threatened.
