  to begin shortly.



  HAZARD...Flash flooding caused by thunderstorms.



  SOURCE...Radar.



  IMPACT...Flash flooding of small creeks and streams, urban

           areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as

           other poor drainage and low-lying areas.



* Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...

  mainly rural areas of Northeastern Golden Valley and Northwestern 

  Musselshell Counties



This includes the following streams and drainages...

  Dry Pole Creek, Minerva Creek, Pole Creek, Jones Creek, Willow 

  Creek, Cat Creek, Whoop-Up Creek, Alkali Creek, and Cameron Creek.



This replaces the Flood Advisory previously in effect for this area. 



PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...



Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood 

deaths occur in vehicles. Do not drive on or attempt to cross 

flooded roads, find an alternate route. Roads and driveways may be 

damaged or washed out in places.



In hilly terrain there are many low water crossings which are 

potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded 

roads. Find an alternate route.



Remain alert for flooding of creeks, streams, and normally dry 

coulees even in areas not receiving rainfall. These can become 

raging killer currents in a matter of minutes even from distant 

rainfall upstream.



Please report observed flooding to local emergency officials and 

request they pass the information to the National Weather Service in 

Billings.
