Flood warnings issued for parts of the carolinas

Showers and storms overnight could produce damaging winds and hail and will linger into the Tuesday morning commute.

A flash flood warning means flooding is either imminent or already occurring.

The National Weather Service forecasts the river won't drop very much before rising to an even higher level next week as warmer temperatures continue to melt the mountain snowpack. Residents along streams and creeks should take immediate precautions to protect life and property. The Okanogan River is expected to rise to more than 21 feet by Saturday, which may flood some homes and farmlands. Lowland and agricultural land throughout the county also experienced flooding.

The heaviest rain is expected Thursday and Friday and a Flood Watch has been issued from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening. Flood warnings for both rivers are in effect until further notice, the weather service said. At 10:00 p.m. Sunday the stage was 6.2 feet and falling. There are indications that storms may repeatedly move over the same areas, especially during the evening hours, they said.
