...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
530 PM EDT FOR ONSLOW COUNTY...

At 418 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with heavy rain
were mainly west of the New River and continuing to spread west-
southwest. Up to two inches of rain have already fallen in the
advisory area and another 1 to 2 inches is possible, mainly west of
the New River and south of Highway 53. This will cause urban and
small stream flooding due to overflowing poor drainage areas.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Jacksonville, New River Station, Half Moon, Pumpkin Center, Piney
Green, Camp Lejeune Center, Swansboro, Richlands, Folkstone, Kellum,
Midway Park, Verona, Catherine Lake, Dixon, Petersburg, Albert J
Ellis Airport, Richlands South, Sneads Ferry and Haws Run.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

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.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
