Warnings & Notices

Areal Flood Watch, Flood Advisory

Expires 6:00 PM EST on February 21, 2019
Statement as of 2:50 PM EST on February 21, 2019

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

The Flood Watch continues 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 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.
