Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 11:52 AM EDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM EDT this evening...

* heat index values... will range up to 107 degrees this
afternoon.

* Timing... heat index values will climb above 100 degrees early
this afternoon and reach 105 to 109 degrees for a couple of
hours this afternoon.

* Impacts... the heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure. With multiple days of high
heat and humidity and with temperatures not cooling below 80 at
night, this is a potentially very dangerous heat event.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions... if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water. Fans are essential to move the air for
those without air conditioning.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles.
Car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes. Bring pets indoors if possible, even if for just short
periods of time; and ensure they have access to drinking water,
which can evaporate from dishes very quickly in extreme heat.

Special Statement
Issued: 3:47 PM EDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... A strong thunderstorm will affect southwestern Anson County until
430 PM EDT...

At 347 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm near
sturdivants, or 13 miles east of Monroe, moving east at 5 mph.

Half inch hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph will be possible with this
storm.

Locations impacted include...
Polkton, Peachland and White Store.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
50 mph are capable of knocking down small or weakened trees and
blowing around trash cans, potted plants, lawn furniture and other
light outdoor objects.

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.

Frequent cloud to ground lightning is occurring with this storm.
Lightning can strike 10 miles away from a thunderstorm. Seek a safe
shelter inside a building or vehicle.
