Special Statement

Statement as of 7:49 PM EDT on August 18, 2017

Expires 8:45 PM EDT on August 18, 2017


... A strong thunderstorm will affect Alamance... northeastern Randolph
and southeastern Guilford counties until 845 PM EDT...

At 748 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 8
miles south of Greensboro, moving east at 25 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

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

Locations impacted include...
Greensboro, Burlington, Graham, McLeansville, Elon College,
Gibsonville, Pleasant Garden, Haw River, Swepsonville and Alamance.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
40 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.

Cloud to ground lightning is occurring with this storm.
Lightning can strike 10 miles away from a thunderstorm. Seek a safe
shelter inside a building or vehicle.
