...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1000 PM EDT FOR
SOUTHWESTERN CABARRUS AND NORTHEASTERN MECKLENBURG COUNTIES...

At 823 PM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated that
heavy rain was falling over the area.  Flash flooding is expected to
begin shortly.

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.

Mallard Creek continues to rise near Harrisburg. Back Creek has
crested at Caldwell Road just above flood stage, but additional rain
may cause it to start rising again.

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.
