We don’t only focus on hurricanes and floods…many thanks to Capt McDonald with New Hanover County Fire Rescue for teaching a CPR class for the EM team today. When is the last time you took a CPR class? #alwaystraining #ReadyNHC

There is a Flood Advisory in place for our region until 1:15pm today because of heavy rain from slow moving thunderstorms crossing our area. A Flood Advisory means that localized flooding is possible near small streams, creeks, and especially poor drainage areas. Flooding is also possible at prone low-lying areas along roads, which can make driving hazardous. Stay away from flooded ditches and do not drive across any flooded roads.

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from 2pm today (07/19) until 6am tomorrow (07/20) as thunderstorms redevelop over our area this afternoon. A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. You should closely monitor this potentially dangerous weather situation. Be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued for your area, and never drive through flooded roadways.
