Special Statement

Expires 2:15 AM EDT on July 23, 2018
Statement as of 1:21 am EDT on July 23, 2018

... A line of strong thunderstorms will affect central Harnett...
northwestern Cumberland... northeastern Lee... southwestern wake and
southeastern Chatham counties until 215 am EDT...

At 120 am EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a line of strong
thunderstorms along a line extending from 8 miles west of Lillington
to near Fort Bragg. Movement was north at 20 mph.

Wind gusts up to 45 mph will be possible with these storms.

Heavy rain and minor flooding and deadly cloud to ground lightning
will also be possible with these storms.

Locations impacted include...
Fayetteville, Lillington, Fort Bragg, Fuquay-Varina, Pope AFB, apex,
Holly Springs, Spring Lake, Broadway and New Hill.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
45 mph are capable of knocking down tree limbs and blowing around
trash cans, potted plants, lawn furniture and other light outdoor
objects.

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.
