The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Portions of southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina, including the following areas, in southeast North
Carolina, Bladen, Coastal Brunswick, Coastal New Hanover,
Coastal Pender, Columbus, Inland Brunswick, Inland New
Hanover, Inland Pender, and Robeson. In northeast South
Carolina, Central Horry, Coastal Georgetown, Coastal Horry,
Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Inland Georgetown, Marion,
Marlboro, Northern Horry, and Williamsburg.
* From midnight EDT tonight through Monday afternoon
* 2 to 3 inches of rain, and locally higher amounts of 4 to 5
inches, will fall late tonight through Monday on top of already
soggy ground, which brings the potential for problematic
flooding. Overflow of water from ditches and streams could lead
to flash flooding as well, where the danger increases greatly,
due to the power of moving water.
A Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flooding or flash flooding.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip currents
are likely in the surf zone.
Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
If you become caught in a rip current, yell for help. Remain calm,
do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for help. If
you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to shore and
back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly
against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
