...A THUNDERSTORM WITH INTENSE LIGHTNING AND TORRENTIAL RAINFALL WILL
IMPACT SOUTHEASTERN GREENVILLE AND EAST CENTRAL ANDERSON COUNTIES
UNTIL 600 PM EDT...

At 525 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a thunderstorm with intense
lightning and torrential rainfall 11 miles northeast of Anderson, or
near Williamston, moving northeast at 25 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Belton, Williamston, West Pelzer and Fork Shoals.

Torrential rainfall rates up to 3 inches per hour 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.
