...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT SOUTHEASTERN SAMPSON COUNTY
UNTIL 600 PM EDT...

At 455 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 8
miles west of Rose Hill, or 10 miles southwest of Warsaw, moving
northeast at 30 mph. One to one and one half inches of rain has
already fallen between Garland and Harrells.

Heavy rain and minor flooding will be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Clinton, Harrells, Garland and Turkey.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
