...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT SOUTHWESTERN STANLY COUNTY UNTIL
315 PM EDT...

At 230 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 8
miles southwest of Plyler, or 11 miles southwest of Albemarle. This
storm was nearly stationary.

Pea size hail, wind gusts up to 50 mph, and deadly cloud to ground
lightning can be expected with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Albemarle, Plyler, Locust, Oakboro, Stanfield and Finger.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

Very heavy rain can be expected due to the slow movement of this
storm. Prolonged heavy rain will result in ponding of water on
roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and minor flooding of
creeks and streams. Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra
caution to avoid hydroplaning.

This storm is producing a frequent amount of deadly cloud to ground
lightning. Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close enough
to be struck by lightning.
