...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WITH INTENSE LIGHTNING WILL IMPACT
NORTHEASTERN CHESTER AND SOUTHEASTERN YORK COUNTIES UNTIL 815 PM
EDT...

At 726 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm with
intense lightning 10 miles southeast of Rock Hill, or near Catawba,
moving south at 10 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Fort Lawn, Richburg, Catawba, Fishing Creek Reservoir and Edgemoor.

In addition to intense lightning, wind gusts up to 40 mph and pea
size hail will be possible in these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

Frequent lightning is occurring with this storm. If outdoors, try to
get indoors or into a hard topped vehicle. Otherwise, stay away from
open areas and isolated high objects such as trees. When indoors,
stay away from windows and doors and avoid using wired electronic
devices. Do not take a shower or bath. Try to unplug unnecessary
appliances before the storm approaches.
