  • Statement as of 4:04 PM EDT on August 29, 2015


    The National Weather Service in Ruskin has issued a

    * Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
    northern Hillsborough County in west central Florida...
    south central Pasco County in west central Florida...

    * until 600 PM EDT

    * at 403 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
    thunderstorms. This will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding in
    the advisory area. Up to two inches of rain has already fallen
    over potions of the advisory area. An additional 1 to 3 inches is
    possible through 6 PM.

    * Some locations that will experience flooding include...
    Tampa... Temple Terrace... Lutz... Brandon... Tampa International
    Airport... Egypt Lake-leto... University... Land O Lakes... greater

    Park... Land O' Lakes... Pebble Creek... Keystone... Lake magdalene and
    greater Carrollwood.

    Precautionary/preparedness actions...

    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.
