…THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 400 AM EDT FOR
SOUTHEASTERN YORK COUNTY…

At 228 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated the heavy rain producing
showers and thunderstorms had moved east of the warning area and
largely dissipated. However, high water conditions continue along
and just west of the Interstate 77 corridor in southeastern York
County. The Flash Flood Warning will continue at least until 3 AM in
case new flooding develops along or near Stony Fork Creek, Fishing
Creek, or around low lying areas of Lesslie, Catawba or Rock Hill.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. Only a few
inches of rapidly flowing water can carry away your vehicle. It is
not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

When it is safe to do so, please report flood waters 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.
