Expires 6:00 PM EST on February 21, 2019
Statement as of 3:31 am EST on February 21, 2019

... Flood Watch in effect through Friday evening...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued
a

* Flood Watch for portions of northeast Georgia, western North
Carolina, and upstate South Carolina, including the following
areas, in northeast Georgia, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Rabun,
and Stephens. In western North Carolina, Buncombe, eastern
Polk, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Macon, Madison, northern
Jackson, Polk mountains, southern Jackson, Swain, and
Transylvania. In upstate South Carolina, Anderson, greater
Greenville, greater Oconee, greater Pickens, Greenville
mountains, Oconee mountains, Pickens mountains, and
Spartanburg.

* Through Friday evening

* additional moderate to locally heavy rain falling on saturated
soils, is producing Rapid River and stream level responses.
Additional rainfall totals of 1" to 2" are likely across the
watch area today through Friday, most of which will be runoff.

* Flooding of area streams and mainstem rivers will likely
inundate low-lying areas adjacent to streams, including
farmland, Parks, and campgrounds. Flooding is most likely along
the upper French Broad River and associated tributaries. Periods
of heavy rain can overwhelm or clog storm drains and ditches
with debris and cause extensive street flooding and Road
ponding. This is especially true this time of year as fallen
leaves block or impede drainage systems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
