  DRAINAGE AREAS IN...
  AIKEN COUNTY IN CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA...

* UNTIL 845 PM EDT

* AT 712 PM EDT WEATHER RADAR INDICATES AREAS ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN
AIKEN COUNTY HAVE RECEIVED 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAINFALL THE PAST 2
HOURS.  THIS AREA IS GENERALLY EAST OF WINDSOR...SOUTH OF
WAGENER...AND WEST OF SALLEY.  MINOR FLOODING OF SMALL STREAMS AND
CULVERTS MAY OCCUR DUE TO THIS HEAVY RAINFALL...CAUSING WATER TO
FLOW ACROSS AND ALONG AREA ROADWAYS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER ON COUNTRY ROADS AND
FARMLAND ALONG THE BANKS OF CREEKS AND STREAMS.

REPORT FLOODING TO YOUR COUNTY SHERIFF...OR USE
WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/NWSCOLUMBIA AND EMAIL CAEWX@NOAA.GOV TO RELAY
SEVERE WEATHER REPORTS.
