... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 1215 am EDT for Wayne...
northeastern Sampson... wake... Johnston and Durham counties...

At 818 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated an areas of moderate to
locally heavy rainfall across the warned area. Much of this region
has received around one and a half inches of rain between 2 PM and 8
PM. Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches are possible in
the warned area through 10 PM.

Water levels are rising along Crabtree creek. It appears that
Crabtree creek at old Wake Forest Road will go into flood shortly.
Ongoing street flooding across the area may expand through 10 PM.
Water levels were also rising along Swift Creek in southern Wake
County.

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.
