Flash Flood Warning

Statement as of 4:30 PM EDT on October 23, 2017

Expires 10:30 PM EDT on October 23, 2017


The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
western Caldwell County in western North Carolina...
central Burke County in western North Carolina...

* until 1030 PM EDT Monday

* at 426 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain across the warned area. Widespread rainfall totals of 1-
3 inches has already occurred since early this morning, with most
of the rainfall occurring over the last 2-3 hours. An additional 1-
2 inches of rainfall is likely as the final round of rainfall
pushes across the warned area over the next 60 minutes. This heavy
rainfall will cause flooding of streams and other low-lying areas
across the warned area.

* The area of greatest concern is across western Caldwell County and
northern Burke County, especially along the following streams and
associated tributaries: Johns River, Wilson Creek, Mills creek,
Mulberry creek, Estes Mill Creek, Tough Hill branch, thunderhole
creek, Coldwater creek, and Franklin branch.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Morganton, Gamewell, Drexel, Blowing Rock in Caldwell County, South
Mountains State Park, Edgemont, Collettsville, Pleasant Grove,
Globe and Upton.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

In hilly and mountainous terrain, there are hundreds of low-water
crossings which can be dangerous in heavy rain. Low-water crossings
can be submerged by flood waters quickly and without warning. Never
attempt to travel across flooded crossings. Find an alternate Route.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.

Obey all barricades, even if water is not currently over the Road.
Barricades are in place for your protection and indicate areas where
flooding can occur rapidly and without warning.

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.
