...A strong thunderstorm will affect portions of northwestern
Edgecombe...northeastern Nash and Halifax Counties Until 530 PM
EDT...

At 422 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm near
Rocky Mount, moving northeast at 15 mph.

Pea size hail and 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...
Rocky Mount, Roanoke Rapids, Nashville, Halifax, Scotland Neck,
Dortches, Littleton, Red Oak, Enfield and Sharpsburg.

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
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.
