    Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. If flash flooding is observed act quickly. Do not enter the water. Turn around and move up to higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.
    Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely

    I think there's going to be a lot of blown out trout streams for a few days.
