Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 10:01 AM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of central North Carolina...
including the following areas... Cumberland... Edgecombe...
Harnett... Hoke... Johnston... Lee... Moore... Richmond... Sampson...
Scotland... Wayne and Wilson.

* Through this evening.

* Very heavy rainfall totalling as much as 6 to 10 inches has
fallen over portions of east central and southeast North
Carolina since yesterday. Additional heavy rain of one to four
inches is possible across this area through this evening...
which could lead to new flooding or exacerbate ongoing flooding.

* These expected rainfall amounts will worsen existing flooding
from last night's rains. Mainstem rivers will rise and may reach
out of their banks. Creeks... streams... and drainage basins
will fill up and over their banks... potentially flooding nearby
roads and low areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should
flash flood warnings be issued.
