          force wind of 74 to 110 mph of equivalent Category 1 to 2 
          intensity.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life. 
          Properties remain subject to extensive wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to urgently hide from the wind. Failure to 
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury or loss of 
          life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous wind subsides.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
        - Potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 1-3 feet 
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: through early this evening

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Elevated
        - The storm surge threat has decreased from the previous 
          assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should posture for a reasonable 
          threat for peak storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot 
          above ground.
        - To be safe, stay away from storm surge flooding capable of 
          limited impacts.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Continue to follow the 
          instructions of local officials.

          and rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their 
          banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams, 
          creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging 
          rivers. In mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down 
          valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and 
          mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become 
          stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of 
          raging water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions 
          become very dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures 
          with some weakened or washed out.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Life-threatening storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 3-5 feet 
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Around high tide

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Moderate
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should posture for a reasonable 
          threat for dangerous storm surge flooding of greater than 3 
          feet above ground.
        - To be safe, evacuees should be located within prescribed 
          shelters and well away from storm surge flooding capable of 
          significant impacts.
        - Life-threatening inundation is possible. Those who failed

          and rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their 
          banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams, 
          creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging 
          rivers. In mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down 
          valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and 
          mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become 
          stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of

          assessment.
        - Emergency considerations need not include a threat for 
          tornadoes. Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty 
          winds may still occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical 
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Little to None

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Equivalent Tropical Storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 30-40 mph with gusts to 55 mph

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: High
        - The wind threat has decreased from the previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for hurricane 
          force wind of 74 to 110 mph of equivalent Category 1 to 2 
          intensity.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life. 
          Properties remain subject to extensive wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to urgently hide from the wind. Failure to 
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury or loss of 
          life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous wind subsides.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
        - Potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Localized storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 1-3 feet 
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: through early this evening

    - CURRENT THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY: Elevated
        - The storm surge threat has decreased from the previous 
          assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should posture for a reasonable 
          threat for peak storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot 
          above ground.
        - To be safe, stay away from storm surge flooding capable of 
          limited impacts.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Continue to follow the 
          instructions of local officials.

          and rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their 
          banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams, 
          creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging 
          rivers. In mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down 
          valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and 
          mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become 
          stressed.
        - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple 
          communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or 
          washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover 
          escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of
