Expires 5:45 PM EDT on March 28, 2017


... A strong thunderstorm will affect portions of eastern Johnston...
Wayne and Wilson counties until 545 PM EDT...

At 441 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 8
miles east of Smithfield, moving east at 30 mph.

Dime to nickel size hail and wind gusts up to 40 mph will be
possible with this storm.

Heavy rain and minor flooding will also be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Goldsboro, Smithfield, Wilson, Mount Olive, Elm City, Fremont, Walnut
Creek, Micro, Selma and Sharpsburg.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle to protect yourself
from hail and strong winds.

minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.
