Listen: Charlotte, South Carolina, Roanne County discussed on Leo Laporte
"Quickly. I mean, we had numerous flooding areas across the Charlotte metro down in Union County road flooding, particularly South Carolina, actually down in Chesterfield. Having a flash flood emergency because they picked up over seventeen and a half inches of rain matter of about three days, but I'm a probe into the back came today. So this is like a serious but last wedding. The other. Totals across parts of the Charlotte area. Installing picked up about ten point nine inches of rain. This seventy two hour total. I was just going to say so this this includes that inch engine quarter engine a half hour away where everybody was saying don't don't put your guard down because you're going to have to add this total on to win the heavy bands get here. So the these are kind of the total seventy two hours. I'm good. I'm glad you're doing that. Exactly. And I mean, I know that you know, when it thirty deceiving because the rain yesterday, mainly it was steady. But it was still mainly light. For a lot of folks are just like, you know, we're fine everything. But once those once the heavier bands started coming in. I mean, those numbers just started adding up parts of Matthew. Quarters of an inch of rain. So we're talking about an extensive flooding and beyond you county. They're actually under a curfew that in effect now until Saturday. Yeah. Because the was there. Basically don't go out on the road. If you don't have to because it's really a lot of them have been close. They've seen so much flooding down there. They closed off a lot of rose blocked off a lot of them. Parts of Charlotte, some areas that were came two feet flooding deer Rier creek as well as McAlpine creek our bills areas. Also flooded with this storm in right now, even the sugar creek area near era Woodrow deal at moderate flooding stage a lot of other areas that south leading the rebels are starting to down. But I would say for folks that are listening right now from gases county, I'm near the south fork river things aren't too bad. But all of that rain. River basin. And then I'll come downstream is expected to reach that minor flooding by tomorrow. Even though the rain moving out off to the north. Now, we talked to sheriff Cloninger a little bit earlier and they've been concerned about a number of areas through there. But they've been really concerned about Cramerton, especially and still are. Yes, I mean because there's a lot. I mean, I've been over. There are station. Far from the neck Lindbergh gases county line, but we tend to be part of that river dare, and there's a lot of home. Low lying areas fear. Southward part of that river. So I understand why the Pirker. It's one of those things where once again. I think you're in the clear because the rain is willing to the north as I mentioned, the whole Kabul river basin is a large river basin has three. Yes. Heavy rain is falling right now. The storm drains eventually that goes back into the river areas downstream. And so that's why I would say for folks that are over there. Guard down yet, thankfully, a lot of the heavier rain did stay off to the east for gassing county. They picked up closer to four inches. But as I mentioned looking like it could be a threat through early tomorrow. The last night probably about ten o'clock, I suppose a guy called in. And he said he'd seen a lot of fire trucks and emergency vehicles that had congregated area for mill. And we couldn't quite figure out exactly what had happened there. And as we were watching the bands coming through, and we were waiting for the heavier bands to to get here. And they were all breaking down out further east from here Lumberton in that area and through there. They just weren't penetrating here. But I started looking at bands that were coming in underneath Charlotte and going through South Carolina and fort mill got rocked pretty well, a long time before Charlotte ever saw heavy activity. Exactly. And that's the thing. From basically south north west because it was still still maintain from that rotation. And that's what we were saying we do cover we're Foxworth, Charlotte. But we cover twenty two so some places. Neighborhoods. Being much of anything. Even now they're starting to get hit with some of the heavier rain. Heavy rain pretty much long gone from the Charlotte area covering them right now. For the next forty eight hours as people start to get back into a routine. Head off to work tomorrow morning, obviously roads, there could be depending on where you are counties that you're in could be barriers we've seen in a couple of flood warnings in some so meetings that have been issued tonight and say if you see a barricade don't ignore it and watch, you know, still don't drive through water and stuff, but for the next forty eight hours, we're not going to be rain free. But for instance, rush hour tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon. What's the what's the forecast? We'll see we're we're looking at for tomorrow morning. I do think that if we have any rain in the area, it's going to be much lighter, obviously anymore. But if it is out there it's going to be much lighter than what we've been seeing today. I would say for folks that are in the Charlotte metro tomorrow morning as you're driving to work careful. Standing water is just talking about closures. I mean, there are still some places I think that may still have some trees down because we were dealing with that yesterday as well. We're the wind down with rain picked up just kind of made it a combined situation there. So just kind of heat those warnings and make sure now if you could go around if you just take a little time to get to work kind of allow yourself that time if you're a long night forty corridor. Some of this rain based on early tomorrow morning for you guys, though, if you travel that way, probably here to get to work take it slow the band's won't be as heavy as what we've been seeing. And from there it actually does get pretty nice. No kidding. Temperatures that are going to be in the mid eighty. But by the time, we get to Tuesday and Wednesday definitely looking up. Whoever thought we celebrate high temperature higher temperatures in in greater humidity, essentially. Hey, I'll take it. Hey, you've been great. Thank you very much for for all the hard work. You've done for us over the last couple of days. I appreciate it very much. Thank you guys. You about Britney Hamilton from FOX forty six WJC, y and they have their whole crew over. There has been a big asset in our coverage of a Florence nonstop weekend. Coverage pretty much for Florence flash flood warning just issued for Roanne county until two thirty AM tomorrow morning Doppler radar indicated continuous tropical rain bands across the the warned area. So that's Rohan county up to three inches of rain and fallen since five o'clock flash flooding likely to occur or will begin shortly. And that's their concern. County officials have related that many roads are closed up in Roanne county due to flooding. And in fact, they have run out of available barricades, and that leaves several roads, which are flooded with no barricades. So listen don't drive into a flooded. Rare way roadway, we incessantly tell you that. I know when you get there. And you think your mind says, oh, I can make that tell your mind to not do that to you turn around and find an alternative the exit on interstate eighty five at St. have been closed due to flooding conditions there and some locations that'll experienced flooding include Salisbury and China grove and Spencer Landis inex- Ville grand, Corey Rockwell Cleveland, faith and high rock lake do one thing to."
