Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 2:53 PM EDT May. 22, 2018 – National Weather Service

... A cluster of thunderstorms will impact northern Greenville and
northern Pickens counties until 330 PM EDT...

At 251 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated the leading edge of a cluster
of thunderstorms along a line extending from 9 miles northwest of
Pickens to 9 miles north of Easley, and moving northeast at 15 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Travelers Rest, Slater-Marietta, Paris Mountain State Park,
Tigerville, Lake Robinson, Jocassee gorges, Table Rock State Park,
Furman University, Caesars Head State Park and Pleasant Ridge State
Park.

Torrential rainfall rates up to 3 inches per hour and a few
cloud-to-ground lightning strikes will be possible in these areas.
The storms are moving fast enough at this time to prevent
significant rainfall accumulation in any one area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.
