At 525 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms with torrential
rainfall along a line extending from 7 miles south of Clemson South
Carolina, to 4 miles south of Carnesville Georgia, to 9 miles west
of Homer Georgia, and moving southeast at 20 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Elberton, Hartwell, Anderson, Carnesville, Homeland Park, Northlake,
Pendleton, Royston, Reed Creek and Lavonia.

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.
