Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:32 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of central North Carolina, including the following
areas, Alamance, Anson, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Durham,
Edgecombe, Forsyth, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax,
Harnett, Hoke, Johnston, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Nash, Orange,
person, Randolph, Richmond, Sampson, Scotland, Stanly, Vance,
wake, Warren, Wayne, and Wilson.

* Through late tonight

* numerous showers and storms will bring a threat of locally heavy
rainfall through tonight. As recent rains have produced
saturated soils across the area, any additional heavy rainfall
may lead to rapid runoff and flooding. Quick rises on creeks are
also possible. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected
today through tonight, with locally higher totals of 2 to 3
inches possible, particularly in locations that see showers and
storms move repeatedly over the same area.

* Heavy rainfall may lead to flooding, especially in urban and
poor drainage areas. Rapid rises on creeks and flooding of
drainage ditches are also possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. Monitor later forecasts and be alert for
possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding
should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

It only takes 6 to 12 inches of rapidly flowing water to float a
vehicle. Remember, never drive through areas where water covers
the Road. The water may be much deeper than it appears, and the
Road beneath could be washed away or weakened.
