FLASH FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
901 PM EDT THU SEP 22 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN WILMINGTON HAS EXTENDED THE

* FLASH FLOOD WARNING FOR...
  SOUTHEASTERN PENDER COUNTY IN SOUTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA...

* UNTIL 1030 PM EDT

* AT 854 PM EDT...LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS REPORTED A ROAD
  WASHOUT NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF COUNTRY CLUB DRIVE AND OLDE POINT
  ROAD. THIS HAS OCCURRED AS A RESULT OF NEARLY 8 INCHES OF RAIN
  THAT FELL EARLIER TODAY OVER SOUTHEASTERN PENDER COUNTY.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODING. THE WATER DEPTH WILL BE HARD TO DETERMINE...AND
WASHED OUT OR DAMAGED ROADS MAY BE DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY. AVOID
FLOODED AREAS OR ROADS THAT HAVE BEEN CLOSED. KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE
FROM THE BANKS OF SWIFTLY MOVING STREAMS...CREEKS...AND DITCHES.

MOST FLOODING DEATHS OCCUR IN VEHICLES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROAD. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. FLOWING WATER CAN BE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO
SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED ROADS MAKE THE
SMART CHOICE: TURN AROUND...DON`T DROWN!
