The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a
* Flood Advisory for...
Moore County in central North Carolina...
Scotland County in central North Carolina...
Sampson County in central North Carolina...
Anson County in central North Carolina...
Montgomery County in central North Carolina...
Richmond County in central North Carolina...
Cumberland County in central North Carolina...

* Until 145 AM EDT
* At 751 PM EDT, Doppler radar continued to indicate areas of
moderate to locally heavy rainfall moving east to west across the
Sandhills and the southern Piedmont. Much of this region has
received between two and four inches fo rain since last night. Any
additional rainfall will quickly run-off into rain swollen creeks
and streams, leading to minor flooding in poor drainage areas. If
the rainfall increases in intensity, flood warnings may be needed.
Additional rainfall of !one to one and a half inches is expected
over the area.
In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.
Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is observed act
quickly. Move up to higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay
in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

of low pressure moves northward over eastern North Carolina. Wind
gusts 20 to 25 mph are possible. These winds can easily topple
