Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 5:18 PM EDT Aug. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... A line of strong thunderstorms will affect east central
Alamance... north central Nash... southern Warren... southern Vance...
central Orange... southern Granville... west central Halifax... north
central wake... Durham and Franklin counties until 615 PM EDT...

At 517 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a line of strong
thunderstorms along a line extending from near Henderson to near
Creedmoor to near Mebane. Movement was east at 25 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...
Durham, Chapel HIll, Henderson, Oxford, Hillsborough, Creedmoor,
Louisburg, Wake Forest, Mebane and Butner.

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.

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