...TROPICAL STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT...

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED
    - San Juan and Vicinity

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Below tropical storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 10-20 mph with gusts to 20 mph

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for wind 39 to 
      57 mph
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - 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
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - 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 major 
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from 
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          major flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues are 
          likely.
        - PREPARE: Strongly consider protective actions, especially 
          if you are in an area vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take 
          action will likely result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Extensive
        - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and 
          rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
          multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, 
          and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, 
          destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while 
          increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. 
          Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of 
          moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions 
          become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some 
          weakened or washed out.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for a few 
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a 
          few tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to 
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before 
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter 
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the 
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with 
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, 
          chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or 
          overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, 
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown 
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.

          especially in low-lying vulnerable areas, before conditions 
          become unsafe.
        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for 
          your area.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along 
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas 
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become 
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous 
          in places where surge water covers the road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, 
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, 
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from 
          moorings.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional 3-6 inches, with locally 
          higher amounts

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for moderate 
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from 
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues 
          are possible.
        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area 
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take 
          action may result in serious injury or loss of life. 

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations 
          and rescues.
        - 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, arroyos, and ditches overflow.
        - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken 
          foundations. 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.

        - 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.

* 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 major 
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from 
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          major flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues are 
          likely.
        - PREPARE: Strongly consider protective actions, especially 
          if you are in an area vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take 
          action will likely result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Extensive
        - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and 
          rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
          multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, 
          and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, 
          destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while 
          increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. 
          Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of 
          moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions 
          become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some 
          weakened or washed out.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for a few 
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a 
          few tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to 
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before 
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter 
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the 
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with 
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, 
          chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or 
          overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, 
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown 
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.

          damage.
        - ACT: Move to safe shelter 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
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for up to 2 feet 
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: through early Tuesday evening

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for storm 
      surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot 
          above ground.
        - PREPARE: Complete preparations for storm surge flooding, 
          especially in low-lying vulnerable areas, before conditions 
          become unsafe.
        - ACT: Leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for 
          your area.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along 
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas 
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become 
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous 
          in places where surge water covers the road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, 
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, 
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from 
          moorings.

* 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 major 
      flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from 
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          major flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues are 
          likely.
        - PREPARE: Strongly consider protective actions, especially 
          if you are in an area vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take 
          action will likely result in serious injury or loss of life.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Extensive
        - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and 
          rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in 
          multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, 
          and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, 
          destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while 
          increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. 
          Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of 
          moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions 
          become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some 
          weakened or washed out.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - POTENTIAL THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Potential for a few 
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a 
          few tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to 
          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before 
          hazardous weather arrives.
        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter 
          quickly.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the 
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with 
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, 
          chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or 
          overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, 
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown 
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.
