Western Rowan County in the Piedmont of North Carolina... * Until 230 AM EDT Friday. * At 824 PM EDT, excessive runoff continues across western and northern Rowan County. As a result, stream levels remain elevated and a few streams remain out of their banks across western and northern Rowan County including Second Creek, Third Creek, Fourth Creek, the S Yadkin River and associated tributaries. Isolated road closures remain, including on White Road north of NC 150 at Kerr Creek. Because the flood severity has improved across western Rowan County, but residual flooding remains, the previous Flood Warning has been allowed to expire and a Flood Advisory will take its place. * Action Stage/Advisory flooding is nuisance flooding of low-lying areas adjacent to streams above bankfull. These areas include greenways, parks, farmland, and perhaps a few low-water crossings. Please avoid streams and adjacent areas until the high flows have fully receded. * Some locations that may continue to experience flooding include...Salisbury, Spencer, Cleveland, Mount Ulla, Piedmont Research Station, Woodleaf and Cooleemee. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Please pay close attention to road signs indicating a flood-prone area. Obey all barricades, even if water is not currently over the road. After an event road crews need to assess the road to ensure road stability and safety. Barricades are in place for your protection. && LAT...LON 3559 8051 3557 8074 3558 8075 3568 8077 3585 8071 3586 8069 3586 8067 3584 8067 3584 8063 3582 8061 3583 8060 3582 8059 3582 8057 3578 8051 3578 8048 3573 8045 3572 8038 $$
