18 Major flooding begins. Widespread inundation flooding occurs in the woodlands and fields upstream and downstream from the gage on U S Highways 441 or 319 south of McRae. The water level will top the bridge causing it to act like a dam. Erosion will likely occur to the sides of the bridge and county officials will have it closed. The water will be 1 to 2 feet over the highway. The flood waters will reach the bottom of the USGS gage house.
16 Significant flooding continues to expand further into the woodlands and fields upstream and downstream from the gage on U S Highways 441 or 319 south of McRae. The water level hits the bridge causing it to act like a dam. Erosion may occur to the sides of the bridge and county officials will likely have it closed. The water level will begin to flow over the highway in low areas.
