Lenoir, Morganton, Marion, Spruce Pine, Newland, Gamewell, Cajah`s
Mountain, Drexel, Glen Alpine and Old Fort.

Additional rainfall amounts of around one inch are possible in the

runoff that will bring stream levels back up to bankfull or greater.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

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.
