...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT EASTERN SCOTLAND AND
SOUTHWESTERN HOKE COUNTIES UNTIL 600 PM EDT...

At 504 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 9
miles north of Laurinburg, moving southeast at 10 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

Heavy rain and minor flooding and deadly cloud to ground lightning
will also be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Laurinburg, Maxton, Antioch, Wagram, East Laurinburg, Bowmore and
Sandhills Game Land.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
