LAURENS...ABBEVILLE AND GREENWOOD COUNTIES UNTIL 745 PM EDT...

At 650 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with torrential
rainfall along a line extending from 14 miles northwest of Greenwood
to 13 miles east of Elberton, and moving southeast at 25 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Greenwood, Abbeville, Ware Shoals, Calhoun Falls, Ninety Six, Due
West, Cross Hill, Donalds, Cokesbury and Waterloo.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph and very heavy rainfall rates up to 2 inches
per hour will be possible in these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

The combination of gusty winds and saturated soil conditions will
cause scattered trees and power lines to fall. Seek shelter inside an
interior room.

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters. Do not drive across
flooded roads.
