1233 AM EDT THU MAY 25 2017

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
  Northern Burke County in western North Carolina...

* Until 330 AM EDT

* At 1229 AM EDT, automated stream gauges indicated rapid rises on
  the Johns River 6 miles north of Morganton. This is resulting from
  the recent heavy rainfall across Burke County. Although additional
  rainfall is not expected, further rises from runoff will occur.

* Flooding will likely develop along North Carolina Highway 90 north
  of Collettsville. Flooding is also likely along Johns River Road
  and Corpening Bridge Road.


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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

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.
