...A CLUSTER OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL IMPACT SOUTHEASTERN ELBERT...
SOUTHERN ABBEVILLE AND GREENWOOD COUNTIES UNTIL 815 PM EDT...

At 742 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated the leading edge of a cluster
of thunderstorms along a line extending from 7 miles south of
Greenwood to near Elberton, and moving southwest at 15 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Greenwood, Abbeville, Elberton, Calhoun Falls, Ninety Six,
Lowndesville, Troy, Greenwood State Park, Russell State Park and
Middleton.

Torrential rainfall and wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible in
these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

The combination of gusty winds and saturated soil conditions will
cause scattered trees and power lines to fall. Seek shelter inside an
interior room.

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.
