Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning, Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 6:05 AM EDT Apr. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
Wayne County in central North Carolina...
northeastern Sampson County in central North Carolina...
Wake County in central North Carolina...
Johnston County in central North Carolina...
Durham County in central North Carolina...

* until 1115 am EDT

* at 600 am EDT, Doppler radar continued to indicate areas of
moderate to locally heavy rainfall moving across the warned area.
A large swath of 4 to 6 inches of rain have fallen since Sunday
across this region. Emergency management officials have reported
widespread flooding across the warning area, especially along
secondary roads and urban areas.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible in the
warned area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Do not underestimate the power of flood waters. Only a few inches of
rapidly flowing water can quickly carry away your vehicle.

520 am EDT Tue Apr 25 2017

... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 715 am EDT for
central Wake County...

At 500 am EDT, gauges along portions of the Crabtree creek basin in
Raleigh indicate moderate to major flooding ongoing across the
warning area.

In the Anderson drive area, the water level was near 20.4 ft at 5 am
and still rising. At this level, flood waters enter the lower homes
on Claremont drive opposite the creek. At 21 feet, flooding reaches
under the clearance of the Anderson drive bridge.

In the Crabtree valley mall area, the water level at 5 am EDT was
21.8 ft and still rising. At 22 feet, flood waters cover Creedmoor
Road and all of the parking lots at Crabtree valley mall are
flooded.

In the old Wake Forest Road vicinity, the water level at 5 am EDT
was at 19.2 feet and rising. The flood waters have likely covered
sections of McNeil street at old Wake Forest, flooding nearby
businesses. At 20 feet, the flood waters will flood Wake Forest
bridge roadway.



Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from the heavy rain will cause flash flooding of
creeks and streams, roads, low lying and poor drainage areas. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the Road. Many
roads and intersections in the area will quickly flood. When
encountering flooded roads, turn around, don't drown.

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:38 AM EDT Apr. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 8 am EDT this morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of central North Carolina.

* Until 800 am EDT this morning.

* Heavy rain will persist through sunrise, primarily along and
north of a band extending northwest from Goldsboro to the
Triangle.

* Flooding of creeks, streams, and drainage ditches can be
expected, particularly in the Triangle. At 230 am EDT, Crabtree
creek in Raleigh had already exceeded major flood stage at old
Wake Forest Road and was approaching major flood stage at
Glenwood Avenue and Anderson drive.

* Saturated soil from heavy rainfall and occasional northeast wind
gusts up to 25 mph may result in a few downed trees and power
outages. Downed trees have been reported in numerous locations
over the past 24 hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio or your local media outlet for the
latest forecasts and warnings. Residents in flood prone areas
should prepare for the possibility of flooding, particularly those
who live along and near Crabtree creek on Glenwood Avenue,
Anderson drive, and old Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.

Special Statement
Issued: 6:08 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Downed trees and powerlines possible tonight...

Persistent rain has saturated the ground, making it quite soggy.
Meanwhile, brisk northeast winds are probable tonight as an area
of low pressure moves northward over eastern North Carolina. Wind
gusts 20 to 25 mph are possible. These winds can easily topple
trees with shallow or weakened roots due to the soggy soil. Some
of these trees may fall on powerlines, resulting in sporadic
power outages.

The winds and the rain are expected to subside close to daybreak
Tuesday.
