The National Weather Service in Medford has issued a

* Flood Warning for small streams in...
eastern Coos County in southwestern Oregon...

* until 900 am PST Sunday

* at 1205 am PST... a trained weather spotter reported flooding near
Sitkum at the Junction of the East Fork of the Coquille river and

the past 24 hours and additional rainfall is expected through
Sunday morning.

Powers and Sitkum.

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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
