Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
509 PM EDT SUN JUL 23 2017

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
  Southeastern Union County in the Piedmont of North Carolina...

* Until 815 PM EDT

* At 508 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain across the warned area.  Up to three inches of rain
  have fallen over the past two hours. Flash flooding is likely
  occurring or will begin shortly.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Wingate, Marshville, Monroe and Unionville.


Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few
inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is
not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON`T DROWN.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding in urban
areas. Storm drains, streams and other drainages will become
overwhelmed by excessive rainfall, flooding low-lying roads,
intersections, and parking lots. Underpasses are especially dangerous
because sudden flood waters can quickly surround and submerge your
vehicle. Stay alert and avoid flood-prone areas.

When it is safe to do so, please report flood waters or landslides
flowing over roads or threatening property to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free, 1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, by posting on
our Facebook page, or via Twitter using hashtag NWSGSP. Your message
should describe the event and the specific location where it
occurred, including roadways, nearby cross streets, stream names and
other landmarks.
