Statement as of 11:42 AM EDT on September 30, 2016

Expires 10:45 PM EDT on September 30, 2016


... A Flash Flood Warning for a dam failure remains in effect until
715 PM EDT Friday for northeastern Cumberland and northwestern
Sampson counties...

Dam safety engineers report that the water level on Rhodes Lake has
fallen about one half a foot overnight and the threat of dam failure
has diminished. The warning will continue through the afternoon...
however... due to the potential for additional rain.

The dam is located along U.S. Route 301 near Baggett Road and if the
dam failed water would surge southeast across U.S. Route 301 and
possibly across Interstate 95 and then downstream on the Black
River.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around... don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most
flood deaths occur in vehicles.
