California, San Luis Obispo County Mountains

Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 5:44 AM PST on January 22, 2017

Expires 2:45 PM EST on January 22, 2017


The National Weather Service in Oxnard has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
San Luis Obispo County in southwestern California...

* until 1145 am PST Sunday

* at 537 am PST, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
heavy rain developing across northwest San Luis Obispo County.
Rainfall rates were approaching a half an inch per hour. Rainfall
rates could approach one inch per hour as the heavier rain
overspreads the County. The heavier rain will likely cause
widespread ponding of water on area roadways and local flooding of
low lying areas and intersections. There will also be the threat
of rock and mudslides, especially across canyon roadways. Minor
mud and debris flows may also occur in the vicinity of the chimney
burn area. Stay away from flood channels, streams, and rivers as
waters will rise rapidly today. If rainfall rates reach high
intensities of an inch per hour or higher, there will be the
likelihood of widespread flooding or flash flooding.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Santa Maria... San Luis Obispo... Paso Robles... Morro Bay...
Pismo Beach... Atascadero... Arroyo Grande... Nipomo... Cambria...
Point Piedras Blancas... Cuyama... Grover Beach... Guadalupe...
Shell Beach... San Miguel... Lake Nacimiento... Cayucos...
Diablo Canyon... Hearst Castle... and Avila Beach.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
