Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 6:19 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
Wayne County in central North Carolina...
northeastern Sampson County in central North Carolina...
Wake County in central North Carolina...
Johnston County in central North Carolina...
Durham County in central North Carolina...

* until 1215 am EDT

* at 617 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause
flooding. Upwards of two inches has fallen since mid morning,
saturating the ground.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches are possible in the
warned area through 9 PM. This rain will quickly run-off causing
creeks and streams to overflow their banks.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 5:25 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The flood advisory... for minor flooding in poor drainage areas
remains in effect until 800 PM EDT for Alamance... Scotland...
Davidson... Anson... Harnett... Montgomery... Richmond... Cumberland...
Stanly... Lee... wake... Johnston... Hoke... Moore... Forsyth... Wayne...
Sampson... Orange... Randolph... Guilford... Wilson... Chatham and Durham
counties...

At 520 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated widespread light to moderate
rain with pockets of heavy rain moving southeast to northwest
across a large portion of central NC. This persistent rainfall on a
saturated ground will cause minor flooding. Overflowing creeks,
streams, and poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding in
the advisory area. Between one and two inches of rain have fallen
since 8 am.

Additional rainfall of one to as much as threes inches is expected
over the area. This additional rain may result in the issuance of
flood warnings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
