Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:59 PM EDT on April 18, 2014

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on April 19, 2014


The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flood Advisory for minor flooding of poor drainage areas in...
eastern McIntosh County in southeast Georgia...

* until 530 PM EDT

* at 353 PM EDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
heavy rain occurring along a line extending from Shellman Bluff to
17 miles south of Wolf Island.

This rain may drop between 1 to 2 inches through 530 PM... which
may lead to minor flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas.

* Locations in the advisory include but are not limited to...
Shellman Bluff... Valona... Wolf Island... Sapelo Island... Raccoon
Bluff... Blackbeard Island... Harris Neck...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing... find
another Route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina...
including the following areas... in southeast Georgia...
coastal Bryan... coastal Chatham... coastal Liberty... coastal
McIntosh... Evans... inland Bryan... inland Chatham... inland
Liberty... inland McIntosh... long and Tattnall. In southeast
South Carolina... Beaufort... Charleston... coastal Colleton and
coastal Jasper.

* Through late tonight

* widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches with locally higher
totals are expected through tonight. The heaviest rainfall will
occur from late this afternoon through early Saturday morning.
Of significant concern is the fact that torrential rainfall is
expected late this evening around the time of an above normal
high tide. This could result in significant flooding concerns in
coastal low-lying areas including downtown Charleston and
Savannah.

* Flooding could occur quickly... especially in low-lying and
poor drainage areas. Driving could become hazardous as some
area roadways could become impassable due to high water...
especially in urban areas like downtown Charleston and
Savannah around the time of high tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be prepared to protect life and property... especially in areas
prone to flooding. If flooding develops... move to higher ground
immediately. If driving... be prepared for flooded roadways and
possible Road closures.
