Central Burke County in western North Carolina... * Until 745 AM EDT. * At 437 AM EDT, stream gauges indicated ongoing flooding along the Johns River at Arney's Store north of Morganton. The river has crested and is beginning to recede, but will remain above flood stage for a couple of hours. * Flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of central Burke County. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. When it is safe to do so, please report flood waters or landslides flowing over roads or threatening property to the National Weather Service by calling toll free, 1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, by posting on our Facebook page, or via Twitter using hashtag NWSGSP. Your message should describe the event and the specific location where it occurred, including roadways, nearby cross streets, stream names and other landmarks. && LAT...LON 3587 8170 3584 8169 3578 8165 3578 8168 3585 8175 3589 8173 $$
