...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 945 PM EDT FOR
SOUTHWESTERN MECKLENBURG COUNTY...

At 819 PM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that heavy rain has fallen over the area.  Flash flooding
continues across the warned area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Uptown Charlotte, Central Charlotte, Southwest Charlotte, East
Charlotte, Northwest Charlotte, Pineville, Freedom Park, The Plaza,
Charlotte Douglas Airport and Hidden Valley.

The worst areas appear to be along Briar Creek and Little Sugar
Creek south of downtown Charlotte. Masonic Drive is closed at Briar
Creek. Many creeks and streams across the area remain high.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few
inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is
not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON`T DROWN.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

When it is safe to do so, please report flood waters or landslides
flowing over roads or threatening property to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free, 1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, by posting on
our Facebook page, or via Twitter using hashtag NWSGSP. Your message
should describe the event and the specific location where it
occurred, including roadways, nearby cross streets, stream names and
other landmarks.
