AT 516 PM EDT...DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED HEAVY RAIN DUE TO
THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL CAUSE MINOR FLOODING IN THE ADVISORY AREA.
UP TO 2.5 INCHES OF RAIN HAVE ALREADY FALLEN. SOME LOCATIONS THAT
WILL EXPERIENCE MINOR FLOODING INCLUDE SOUTHERN
PINES...PINEHURST...ABERDEEN...PINEBLUFF...TAYLORTOWN AND ASHLEY
HEIGHTS.

STORMS ARE SHOWING SIGNS OF WEAKENING. AS SUCH...AN ADDITIONAL HALF
INCH OF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED OVER THE AREA.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.
