Expires 10:00 PM EDT on August 31, 2016


... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Quincy
    - Chattahoochee

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
          tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
          Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury, or in some
          cases loss of life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous
          wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized heavy rainfall may result in flooding of low
          lying areas, necessitating basic precautions to protect
          vulnerable structures.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will
          rise and approach bankfull levels. Runoff will increase
          water levels in area holding ponds and drainage ditches,
          reducing storage capacity to absorb future rainfall.
        - Isolated flooding in low lying areas will make driving
          difficult. Ponding of water in low lying areas may result
          in brief Road closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
