Flooding, wind damage possible as storms sweep through NC

The National Weather Service maintains Flash Flood Watches for coastal counties of the Lower Cape Fear Region, most points to the north, and also the Grand Strand of SC. Wind will continue to crank up from the southeast at 15-20 miles per hour by the afternoon gusting higher than that at points. The National Weather service warned residents that are in areas under a flash flood watch to monitor weather to ensure safety Wednesday afternoon. The story of a catastrophic flood - a metaphor for a cleansing of humanity's sins - appears in many cultures, from ancient Mesopotamia to China, to Maya peoples and aboriginal tribes in Australia. Locally heavy downpours are possible too. Friday, storms will probably hug the southern mountains and I-25 corridor in the afternoon with only a few showers up around the Pikes Peak region.
