Blvd. As of 425 PM EDT... according to the Florida Highway
patrol... the intersection of sr 618 and Gandy Blvd is blocked due
to flooding. Also the intersection of US 41 and adamo drive is
blocked due to flooding. Motorists are urged to avoid these areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

To report flooding... have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.

Coastal Hazard Statement, Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:57 PM EDT on August 01, 2015

... High rip current risk remains in effect through Sunday
evening...

* rip current timing... through Sunday evening.

* Rip current impacts... marine conditions support stronger or
more frequent rip currents. If caught in a rip current... do
not fight it by trying to swim back to shore. Try to get the
attention of lifeguards by calling out or waving your hands.
If you are able or if no help is available... swim parallel to
the beach until the current weakens... and then swim toward
shore.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.
