...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
745 PM EDT FOR CARTERET AND CRAVEN COUNTIES...

AT 708 PM EDT RADAR INDICATED THAT INITIAL BATCH OF STORMS HAVE
MOVED EAST OF THE AREA. HOWEVER...ADDITIONAL HEAVY SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WITH TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS WERE REDEVELOPING FROM
BEAUFORT WEST AND NORTHWEST ACROSS MOREHEAD CITY...NEWPORT AND NEAR
HAVELOCK. THIS ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN WILL LEAD TO POOR DRAINAGE
FLOODING IN LOW LYING AREAS.

WARNED AREA.

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO

DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL
ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER IN URBAN AREAS...
HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS OTHER POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS.

TO REPORT FLOODING...HAVE THE NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY RELAY
