Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
1117 AM EDT Fri Apr 19 2019

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

  • Flash Flood Warning for…
    Henderson County in western North Carolina…

  • Until 515 PM EDT Friday.

  • At 1108 AM EDT, Heavy rainfall totaling 2-3 inches in the past
    three hours across the northwestern half of Henderson County is
    already causing significant runoff, stream response, and Minor
    flooding of low-lying areas from Etowah to Horse Shoe to Mountain
    Home to Fletcher. However, additional rainfall is occurring and
    will persist across Henderson County for several more hours. Storm-
    total rainfall may exceed 5 inches in some locations by mid-
    afternoon. This will exacerbate ongoing flood concerns, especially
    across the northwestern half of the county.

  • People in Henderson County, especially from Hendersonville north
    and east towards Etowah, Mills River, and Fletcher, are urged to
    stay away from low-water crossings, low-lying roadways adjacent to
    streams, and all areas adjacent to streams including parks,
    greenways, farmland, and residences including apartment buildings
    and campgrounds. Water will rise quickly and you will have little
    time to respond or evacuate. Seek higher ground immediately!

  • The flood threat will persist for several hours, so it is
    important not to let your guard down as streams will continue to
    rise and new flooding may develop well into the afternoon hours.
    Please avoid low-lying areas through this afternoon and obey all
    barricades and evacuation orders as they are in place to save your
    life!

  • The following streams and associated tributaries are experiencing
    rapid rises and flooding is likely: Mills River, Cane Creek,
    Boylston Creek, Clear Creek, Mud Creek, and other small
    tributaries into the French Broad River.

  • Some locations that may experience worsening flooding include…
    Hendersonville, Mills River, Fletcher, Flat Rock, Etowah, Mountain
    Home, Laurel Park, Bat Cave, B.R. Parkway-Mount Pisgah To The Nc
    Arboretum and Valley 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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, highways, and underpasses. Addditionally, country
roads and farmlands along the banks of creeks, streams, and other
low-lying areas are subject to flooding.

Numerous roads, parking lots and bridges will be threatened by heavy
rain and rapidly rising streams and creeks. Please pay close
attention to road signs indicating a flood-prone area. Obey all
barricades, even if water is not currently over the road. Barricades
are in place for your protection and indicate areas where flooding
can occur rapidly and without warning.

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.
