The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast North Carolina and northeast South

* Through this evening

* historic and life-threatening flooding is occurring across the
watch area. There have been reports of flash flood waters
inundating structures to include homes. Numerous streams...
ditches and retention ponds have overflowed their banks to
flood nearby areas. Some earthen dams and levees have
reportedly overflowed or failed. Larger rivers continue to
rise and we are expecting most will reach moderate to major
flood thresholds during the week. Further evacuations may be
needed in the hardest hit areas. You should consider a place
of safety if you live near a body of water or in a low-lying

* Flash flood warnings are possible today as 1-2 inches of
additional rainfall are possible along the coast and coastal
interior... and around 1 inch amounts possible over the deeper
interior locals of NE SC and se NC. A drying trend is expected
later today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued. Never drive through any
flooded roadway... turn around don't drown. Travel is discouraged
Sunday night into Monday.

Horry and Georgetown counties.

* Coastal flooding... coastal flood thresholds are expected to be
reached one to two hours either side of high tide which occurs
just after 2 PM this afternoon.

* Beach erosion... moderate to severe beach erosion will occur due
to high water run up during the time of high tide.

* Rip current risk... high. Life threatening rip currents are likely
in the surf zone.

The strongest rip currents will occur on either side of low tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip currents
are likely in the surf zone.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain calm...
do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for help. If
you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to shore and
back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly
against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides will
combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
