122 am pst wed dec 29 2010

The national weather service in hanford ca has issued a

* flood warning for urban areas and small streams in...
Fresno county in central california...
This includes the cities of...Fresno...Clovis...
Western kern county in central california...
This includes the cities of...Delano...Bakersfield...
Kings county in central california...
This includes the city of hanford...
Southwestern madera county in central california...
This includes the city of madera...
Western mariposa county in central california...
Merced county in central california...
This includes the cities of...Merced...Atwater...
Western tulare county in central california...
This includes the cities of...Visalia...Tulare...Porterville...

* until 1115 am pst

* at 109 am pst california highway patrol indicated that highway 140
Near el portal has been blocked by large rocks in the roadway.
Several other reports of street flooding near fresno have also
Occurred with road closures.

Heavy rain continues across the warned area with amounts near
Fresno of around an inch to nearly 1.5 inches. Lesser amounts have
Occurred farther south towards bakersfield. However with the
Ground already saturated...It wont take much rain to aggravate
Flooding across the central and southern san joaquin valley and
Southern sierra foothills.

Doppler radar estimated rainfall amounts are around 3 inches so
Far in the foothills with an inch or more possible over the next
Few hours.

A flood warning means that flooding is imminent or has been
Reported. Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not
Expected. However...All interested parties should take necessary
Precautions immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible in
The warned area.

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.
