PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
716 AM PDT TUE OCT 21 2014

...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

OCTOBER 20TH THROUGH 24TH IS CALIFORNIA FLOOD PREPAREDNESS WEEK!
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO
AND MONTEREY BAY AREAS WILL FEATURE A DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL TOPIC
EACH DAY DURING THE PREPAREDNESS WEEK.

TODAY`S TOPIC: TYPES OF FLOODS LOCAL TO THE CALIFORNIA CENTRAL COAST

A FLOOD IS DEFINED AS ANY HIGH FLOW, OVERFLOW, OR INUNDATION BY
WATER WHICH CAUSES OR THREATENS DAMAGE. THIS USUALLY OCCURS WITH
PROLONGED RAINFALL OVER SEVERAL DAYS, INTENSE RAINFALL OVER A
SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, OR WHEN A DEBRIS JAM CAUSES A RIVER OR
STREAM TO OVERFLOW AND FLOOD THE SURROUNDING AREA. OTHER FACTORS
THAT CAN CAUSE OR WORSEN FLOODING IN OUR AREA INCLUDE LEVEE OR DAM
FAILURE .

FLASH FLOODING
A FLASH FLOOD IS DEFINED AS A RAPID WATER LEVEL RISE IN A STREAM,
CREEK, OR RIVER ABOVE A PREDETERMINED FLOOD LEVEL, OR A RAPID AND
EXTREME FLOW OF WATER INTO A NORMALLY DRY AREA. FLASH FLOODS CAN
OCCUR WITHIN HOURS IN LOCAL STREAMS, OR IN MINUTES ON DRY GROUND
PRONE TO PONDING, AFTER HEAVY RAINFALL BEGINS. FLASH FLOODING IS
THE DOMINANT TYPE OF FLOODING THAT OCCURS IN THE CALIFORNIA
CENTRAL COAST, AND INDEED MUCH OF CALIFORNIA-SMALL CREEKS AND
RIVERS TYPICALLY RESPOND QUICKLY AND RISE RAPIDLY DURING HEAVY
RAINFALL EVENTS. FLASH FLOODS MAY ALSO OCCUR IN MINUTES AFTER A
DAM OR LEVEE FAILS, OR FOLLOWING A SUDDEN RELEASE OF WATER HELD BY
A DEBRIS JAM. FLASH FLOODS CAN EVEN OCCUR IN AREAS AWAY FROM THE
CAUSATIVE EVENT. FOR EXAMPLE, AN OTHERWISE TRANQUIL STREAM CHANNEL
CAN FILL QUICKLY FROM AN UPSTREAM RAINFALL EVENT. FLASH FLOODS CAN
CATCH PEOPLE OFF GUARD AND UNPREPARED. YOU MAY ONLY HAVE A FEW
MINUTES WARNING THAT THESE DEADLY, SUDDEN FLOODS ARE COMING. IF
YOU LIVE IN AREAS PRONE TO FLASH FLOODS PLAN NOW TO PROTECT YOUR
FAMILY AND PROPERTY.

DAM BREAK OR LEVEE FAILURE FLOODING
FLOODING DUE TO FAILURE OF ENGINEERED STRUCTURES, ESPECIALLY
DURING THE DRY SEASON IS RARE, BUT CAN BE CATASTROPHIC AND
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. INFORMATION ON DAM FAILURE OR OVERTOPPING, OR
LEVEE FAILURE OR SEEPAGE, IS CLOSELY MONITORED BY THE WEATHER
SERVICE, AND BY FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL OPERATORS AND EMERGENCY
MANAGERS. IN THE EVENT OF POTENTIAL, IMMINENT, OR OCCURRING
FAILURE, THE WEATHER SERVICE WORKS QUICKLY TO INFORM THE PUBLIC,
EMERGENCY PERSONNEL, AND THE MEDIA OF SUCH SITUATIONS AND THE
THREAT THEY MAY POSE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT SUCH FAILURES
CAN OCCUR IN THE DRY SEASON, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE EARTHQUAKES CAN
HAPPEN YEAR ROUND. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW YOUR RISK, KNOW
WHERE LOCAL LEVEES, DAMS, OR OTHER IMPOUNDMENT STRUCTURES ARE
LOCATED RELATIVE TO YOUR COMMUNITY.

OF LAND BURNED BY WILDFIRES.

...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

OCTOBER 20TH THROUGH 24TH IS CALIFORNIA FLOOD PREPAREDNESS WEEK! THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO AND
MONTEREY BAY AREAS WILL FEATURE A DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL TOPIC EACH
DAY DURING THE PREPAREDNESS WEEK.

TODAY`S TOPIC: FLOOD SAFETY AND AWARENESS.

IT FLOODS SOMEWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES OR ITS TERRITORIES NEARLY
EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. FLOODING CAUSES MORE DAMAGE IN THE UNITED
STATES THAN ANY OTHER WEATHER RELATED EVENT, WITH AN AVERAGE OF
EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR AND AN AVERAGE OF NINETY FIVE
FATALITIES PER YEAR IN THE PAST THIRTY YEARS. BEING PREPARED IN
ADVANCE AND KNOWING A FEW FLOOD SAFETY TIPS WILL HELP YOU AND YOUR
FAMILY SURVIVE A FLOOD IF IT HAPPENS IN YOUR AREA.

KNOWING YOUR RISK IN ADVANCE IS THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE FOR
FLOODING OF ANY TYPE IN YOUR LOCATION. MANY OF OUR PARTNERS
PROVIDE INFORMATION TO HELP YOU DETERMINE IF YOU LIVE IN A FLOOD-
PRONE AREA. FOR EXAMPLE, OUR FEDERAL PARTNER FEMA HAS AN ONLINE
MAP SERVICE CENTER THAT YOU CAN VISIT TO SEE IF YOU LIVE IN A
FLOOD PLAIN. ALSO KNOWING IF THERE IS A DAM OR LEVEE SYSTEM IN
YOUR AREA IS IMPORTANT. ANOTHER FEDERAL PARTNER, THE U.S. ARMY
CORPS OF ENGINEERS, HAS INFORMATION ABOUT MANY DAMS AND LEVEE
SYSTEMS. BUT THEY DO NOT OWN OR CONTROL ALL OF THEM, SO CONTACT
YOUR LOCAL NWS OFFICE OR WATER DISTRICT TO FIND OUT MORE. IF A DAM
OR LEVEE FAILS, FLOODING CAN HAPPEN VERY QUICKLY. KNOWING THE
APPROPRIATE PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE ACTIONS CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WEB PAGE IDENTIFIES WHERE FLOODING IS
EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. YOU CAN ACCESS THIS INFORMATION BY VISITING
THE NWS WEBSITE TWENTY FOUR HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, THREE
HUNDRED SIXTY FIVE DAYS A YEAR, FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE WEATHER,
FLOOD, AND EMERGENCY INFORMATION. THE NWS MOBILE WEBSITE CAN ALSO
BE ACCESSED BY MANY MOBILE DEVICES AND SMART PHONES.

NOAA ALL HAZARDS RADIO IS ANOTHER WAY TO RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF
EMERGENCY INFORMATION, INCLUDING EMERGENCY FLOOD INFORMATION, VERY
QUICKLY. NOAA ALL HAZARDS RADIO IS A NATIONWIDE NETWORK OF RADIO
STATIONS BROADCASTING CONTINUOUS WEATHER, RIVER, AND OTHER
EMERGENCY INFORMATION DIRECT FROM NEARBY NWS OFFICES AND EMERGENCY
OFFICIALS. YOU CAN PURCHASE AN ALL HAZARDS RADIO FROM MANY
ELETRONICS STORES AND THEY CAN BE PROGRAMMED TO RECEIVE
INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO YOUR AREA IF IT CONTAINS THE SPECIFIC AREA
MESSAGE ENCODING CAPABILITY, KNOWN AS SAME. YOUR LOCAL NWS OFFICE
CAN HELP YOU WITH THE NECESSARY CODES AND PROGRAMMING IF YOU HAVE
ANY TROUBLE GETTING YOUR ALL HAZARDS RADIO PROGRAMMED.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW TIPS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR A FLOOD. FOR
MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT THE CALIFORNIA FLOOD PREPAREDNESS
WEBSITE.
