Dear Neighbors
The National Weather Service is predicting 8 ft high at the Wet Beaver Creek flood gauge.  This is just into action territory.  NWS and Yavapai County are not predicting a major flood event at this time, but the amount of rain and snow melt in our water shed area may change this expectation quickly.
If you live in one of the flood plains, please have a to go bag ready.  Move extra vehicles to higher ground so that they will not stall and block roadways. Please leave if directed by YCSO to do so.  If you need to be rowed out later, you are endangering your life and those of the first responders.  It would be helpful for those involved to relocate to higher ground for 24 hours. A little inconvenience on your part helps the safety of all.  Better to respond to a false alarm than to be sorry later.
Thank you for being prepared,
. . . . . the calendar crew
