...TROPICAL STORM WARNING IN EFFECT...

A Tropical Storm Warning means tropical storm-force winds are 
expected somewhere within this area within the next 36 hours

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Below tropical storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for wind 39 to 
      57 mph
        - PLAN: Plan for hazardous wind of equivalent tropical storm 
          force due to possible forecast changes in track, size, or 
          intensity.
        - PREPARE: Efforts to protect property should now be 
          underway. Prepare for limited wind damage.
        - ACT: Act now to complete preparations before the wind 
          becomes hazardous.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored 
          mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
        - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or 
          uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees 
          are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown 
          over.
        - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within 
          urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving 
          conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways.
        - Scattered power and communications outages.

* STORM SURGE
    - No storm surge inundation forecast

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Little to no storm surge 
      flooding
        - PLAN: There is little to no threat of storm surge flooding. 
          Rough surf, coastal erosion, and life-threatening rip 
          currents are possible.
        - PREPARE: Little to no preparations for storm surge flooding 
          are needed.
        - ACT: Follow the instructions of local officials. Monitor 
          forecasts.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Little to None
        - Little to no potential impacts from storm surge flooding.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional 4-8 inches, with locally 
          higher amounts

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for moderate 
      flooding rain
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. 
        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area 
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings.  

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter 
          currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially in 
          usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches 
          overflow.
        - Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
          inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor 
          drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving 
          water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving 
          conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Tornadoes not expected
        - PLAN: Tornadoes are not expected. Showers and thunderstorms 
          with gusty winds may still occur.

          against tornadoes at this time. Keep informed of the latest 
          tornado situation.
        - ACT: Listen for changes in the forecast.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Little to None
        - Little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.
