...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 245 AM EDT FOR
DAVIDSON...RANDOLPH AND SOUTHERN GUILFORD COUNTIES...

At 140 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms that were
continuously redeveloping and producing flooding over the warned
area. As much as two to three inches of rain has already fallen from
south-central Davidson County, northeastward across the northwestern
half of Randolph County; and this has resulted in some flooding
already.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
High Point, Asheboro, Lexington, Randleman, North Carolina Zoo,
Thomasville, Linwood, Archdale, Trinity and Pleasant Garden.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to one and a half inches are
possible in the warned area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from the heavy rain will cause flash flooding of
creeks and streams, roads, low lying and poor drainage areas. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road. Many roads
and intersections in the area will quickly flood. When encountering
flooded roads, turn around, don`t drown.
