Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning, Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 2:36 AM EDT Apr. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 715 am EDT for
central Wake County...

At 235 am EDT, Doppler radar indicated areas of moderate rain
falling along the Crabtree creek basin in Raleigh. Between 3.5 and 5
inches of rain has fallen across this region since Sunday. This has
sent Crabtree creek out of its banks across parts of north Raleigh.

In the Anderson drive area, the water level was near 19 ft at 215 am
and still rising. This has likely caused flooding ion the lower
portion of Claremont drive. At 20 feet, flooding reaches the lower
homes on Claremont drive opposite the creek.

In the Crabtree valley mall area, the water level at 215 am EDT was
20 ft and still rising. At 22 feet, flood waters cover Creedmoor
Road and most of the parking lots surrounding The Mall.

In the old Wake Forest Road vicinity, the water level at 215 am EDT
was at 17.5 feet and rising. The flood waters have likely covered
sections of McNeil street at old Wake Forest. At 18 feet, the flood
waters begin to enter businesses.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Move to higher ground now. Act quickly to protect your life.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

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

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately.
Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate
precautions to protect life and property.

1203 am EDT Tue Apr 25 2017

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has extended the

* 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 615 am EDT Tuesday

* at 1154 PM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that areas of moderate to locally heavy rainfall continue cross
the warned area. This additional rainfall will lead to additional
minor flooding, and likely result in additional flooding along
Crabtree creek. Between two and a half and four inches of rain has
fallen since early Monday morning across the area, with several
roads closed due to high water. Crabtree creek was in flood at old
Wake Forest Road, Anderson drive, and Glenwood Avenue.

Additional rainfall amounts of around an inch are possible in the
warned area through 3 am EDT.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

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 Watch
Issued: 2:38 AM EDT Apr. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 8 am EDT this morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of central North Carolina.

* Until 800 am EDT this morning.

* Heavy rain will persist through sunrise, primarily along and
north of a band extending northwest from Goldsboro to the
Triangle.

* Flooding of creeks, streams, and drainage ditches can be
expected, particularly in the Triangle. At 230 am EDT, Crabtree
creek in Raleigh had already exceeded major flood stage at old
Wake Forest Road and was approaching major flood stage at
Glenwood Avenue and Anderson drive.

* Saturated soil from heavy rainfall and occasional northeast wind
gusts up to 25 mph may result in a few downed trees and power
outages. Downed trees have been reported in numerous locations
over the past 24 hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio or your local media outlet for the
latest forecasts and warnings. Residents in flood prone areas
should prepare for the possibility of flooding, particularly those
who live along and near Crabtree creek on Glenwood Avenue,
Anderson drive, and old Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.

Special Statement
Issued: 6:08 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

Persistent rain has saturated the ground, making it quite soggy.
Meanwhile, brisk northeast winds are probable tonight as an area
of low pressure moves northward over eastern North Carolina. Wind
gusts 20 to 25 mph are possible. These winds can easily topple
trees with shallow or weakened roots due to the soggy soil. Some
of these trees may fall on powerlines, resulting in sporadic
power outages.

The winds and the rain are expected to subside close to daybreak
Tuesday.
