A flood warning is in effect for multiple counties through 12:30 pm Friday.

The heavy rain has finally left eastern Carolina, but there will still be plenty of standing water on the roadways. Drivers should continue to use extreme caution. Just one foot of moving water can sweep a vehicle off the road. Remember the saying: turn around, don't drown.

Rainfall totals in inches, from Sunday through midnight Thursday:

Jacksonville 19.19
Ahoskie 18.66
Washington 17.53
Plymouth 15.85
Ayden/Grifton 15.75
New Bern 15.52
Pitt Greenville Airport 15.27
Havelock 14.94
Morehead City 14.57
Kenansville 12.70
Kinston 11.53
Catherine Lake 11.43
Goldsboro 11.42
Rocky Mount 10.65
Edenton 10.50 (Estimated)
Elizabeth City 9.80
Hatteras 7.43
Roanoke Rapids 6.61
Manteo 4.08

Note- These totals are not official, but should be within an inch or less.

A much needed dry stretch will settle in from Friday through Sunday.
Cool and mostly sunny conditions are on tap for the weekend, with highs around 70° and lows dipping to the low 50s by Saturday night.

    WITN Moderator - Thank you for the new information. Now I can tell people that your gauge is correct and not the airport's.

    lm - I've been told that we are not using the information from the Kinston Airport. We have a certified weather gauge at a location within half a mile of the airport.

    With all due respect to the WITN weather team, I don't think the amount for Kinston is correct. If the amount is from the gauge at the Kinston Airport, I would doubt the amount because that gauge has been broken for a long time.

    I live on NC 171, 3.5 miles fron old ford. We keep track of the rain fall, and we have had 24 3/8 inches of rain since Sunday. I don't know if its a record but if not, let's don't try any harder.

    I went thru powellsville last night and had to detour via the mooretown road to thru Bear Swamp to get to Ahoskie last night. i have been told it is now impassible, stoney creek is well underwater and closed. I live in Trap and cant figure out how to get to Ahoskie now, there are rumours of hearing a woman in the woods screaming at Bear Swamp and they cannot find her...it looks like a war zone all around here....

    While we have received a considerable amount of rain, be thankful that the precipitation is liquid instead of the white stuff that fall up north. The rule of thumb is one inch of liquid precipitation equals ten inches of white solid precipitation. As the ol' saying goes, 'No matter how bad you have it, some one else has it worse'. Amen, bros.

    Is there an update for Powellsville?
  • by Edna on Sep 30, 2010 at 11:08 PM
    Any word on the road situation in Hobucken/Lowland? Not a word anywhere about the current conditions on the island and flooding is always a serious problem there. Even in a sprinkle. I have to drive there tomorrow and would like some info on the water levels if anyone knows anything. Thanks.
