...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT ANSON COUNTY UNTIL 800 PM EDT...

At 659 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm near
Sturdivants, or 10 miles west of Wadesboro, moving east at 15 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

Heavy rain and minor flooding and deadly cloud to ground lightning
will also be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Wadesboro, Sturdivants, Polkton, Lilesville, Morven, Peachland,
Blewett Falls Lake and White Store.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
40 mph are capable of knocking down tree limbs and blowing around
trash cans, potted plants, lawn furniture and other light outdoor
objects.

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.
