...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1245 AM EDT FOR
NORTHEASTERN UNION COUNTY...

At 1202 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated that rain has ended within
the Advisory area.  Additional heavy rain is not expected.  However,
storm-total rainfall of 1-3 inches occurred in northern Union County
near the Stanly County line.  The heaviest rainfall occurred between
Fairview and New Salem, generally along and near NC 218 and NC 200
(Morgan Mill Rd), including Love Mill Rd, Sugar and Wine Rd, and
adjacent areas.  Runoff is beginning to decrease and the small
streams within the Grassy Creek and Richardson Creek watersheds
feeding the Rocky River are likely cresting or have recently
crested.  However, residual flooding of low-lying areas is expected
to persist a bit longer; therefore, the Flood Advisory will be
allowed to continue but will likely expire on time at 1245 AM.

Some locations that may continue to experience flooding include...
New Salem and other areas just east of Fairview and northeast of
Unionville in northeastern Union County.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Heavy rainfall will cause rapid rises on small creeks and streams,
possibly flooding low water crossings and farmland. Do not attempt to
travel across flooded roads. Turn around, dont drown.
