Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 9:21 AM EST Feb. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has extended
the

* small stream flood advisory for...
northeastern Greenville County in upstate South Carolina...
west central Spartanburg County in upstate South Carolina...

* until 930 PM EST Friday.

* At 911 am EST, Doppler radar indicated ongoing rainfall across
Greenville and Spartanburg counties which when combined with
saturated soils from the 2-3 inches of rain that has already
occurred over the past 48 hours, will continue to cause
nuisance flooding of streams and adjacent low-lying areas in
the advisory area, including resin creek and the middle Tyger
river.

* The following streamgauge has exceeded action stage:
middle Tyger river at Mt. Lebanon church Rd, W of Gramling.

Current stage: 10.17 feet and rising slowly.
Forecast: the middle Tyger river will try to crest near 10.3
feet, but additional rainfall through today may cause new
rises close to minor flood stage later Friday.
Action stage: 8.0 feet.
Minor flood stage: 10.5 feet.
Impacts: at 8.0 feet, Acton/advisory stage. Resin creek is
flooding near its confluence with the middle Tyger river,
partially flooding Mt. Lebanon church Rd. Immediately west of
the gauge site with up to 1-3 inches of water. At 10.5 feet,
minor flood stage. Resin creek continues to flood near its
confluence with the middle Tyger river, partially flooding Mt.
Lebanon church Rd. Immediately west of the gauge site with up
to 6-18 inches of water. Roads below lake Lyman near the
recycling center may be flooding.

* Flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of northeastern
Greenville and west central Spartanburg counties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Only when it is safe to do so, please report floodwaters or
landslides flowing over roads or threatening property to the National
Weather Service by calling toll-free, 1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, by
posting on our facebook Page, or via twitter using hashtag nwsgsp.
Your message should describe the event and the specific location
where it occurred, including roadways, nearby cross streets, stream
names, and other landmarks.

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

* additional moderate to locally heavy rain falling on saturated
soils, continues to produce Rapid River and stream level
responses. Additional rainfall totals around an inch are
expected across the watch area today, with locally higher
amounts up to 2 inches possible on south-facing ridges. The
majority of this precipitation 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.
