UPDATE

Update from Cumberland County and the National Weather Service regarding the seriousness of the river crest:
  1. The rainfall that fell Sunday night is accumulating in tributaries and flowing into the Little River
  2. An additional ½”- 1” of rain is expected tonight
  3. This is a very serious situation and the “Cumberland County 1 mile evacuation area” will be impacted by flooding
  4. The Little River will crest between midnight and sunrise and will not go down quickly. This will be a long-lasting and dangerous situation.
  5. High speed, fast-moving water with debris will likely cause bridge damage; do not walk or drive on bridges that have been flooded
  6. Even though the rain has ended the flood hazard to life and property is real. Do not become complacent.

  8.    Continued threat of tornadoes
  9.    Heat-related problems/illness – Stay hydrated!
