Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
710 PM EDT TUE APR 24 2018

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
  Southwestern Cabarrus County in the Piedmont of North Carolina...
  Northeastern Mecklenburg County in the Piedmont of North

* Until 1000 PM EDT.

* At 706 PM EDT, Doppler radar and area rain gauges measured 1 to 2
  inches of rain fell in less than an hour earlier. This is causing
  rapid rises on area streams and also producing lingering flooded
  roads due to poor drainage.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Northeast Charlotte, West Concord, Harrisburg, Reedy Creek Park,
  Charlotte Motor Speedway, UNC Charlotte, Croft, Hidden Valley,
  Downtown Concord and Huntersville.

* Back Creek is likely to flood and will impact Stallings Road
  between Middleton Circle and Quail Hollow Drive. Homes on
  fairgrove lane may also be affected by rising creek levels.
  Flooding in rocky meadows and middleton subdivisions on rocky
  river road will be likely. Mallard Creek and Rocky River may also
  flood upstream of Irish Buffalo Creek near Harrisburg.


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.

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.
