Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 5:31 PM MDT on August 27, 2015

Expires 9:30 PM EDT on August 27, 2015


The National Weather Service in Pueblo has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
the Black Forest burn scar in north central El Paso County in east
central Colorado...

* until 730 PM MDT

* at 530 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause Urban and Small Stream flooding in
the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
the Black Forest burn scar.

This includes the following streams and drainages... West Cherry
creek... snipe creek... Kettle Creek... Monument creek... black Squirrel
Creek... Cottonwood Creek... east Cherry Creek... Sand Creek... Burgess
river and Smith Creek.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Just a small amount of rainfall on a burn scar can lead to flash
flooding. Water that is normally absorbed by the soils and
vegetation... runs off almost instantly. This causes creeks and
drainage areas to flood at a much faster rate than normal. In
addition... the soils in a burn scar become unstable when it rains...
sometimes resulting in debris and Falling Rock. Roads can be washed
out by the force of the rushing water and debris.
