WILMINGTON — The National Weather Service has issued several hazardous weather statements for the Cape Fear Region including a flash flood watch and a flood advisory.

Heavy rainfall is expected to occur throughout the day and into early morning hours of Saturday, according to the NWS.

The following locations are all at risk of flooding due to the rains, as well as high tides:

Burgaw, Surf City, Wilmington, Masonboro, Myrtle Grove, Ogden, Carolina Beach, Seagate, Boiling Spring Lakes, Leland, Shallotte, Oak Island, Long Beach, Southport, Sunset Beach, Kingstree, Myrtle Beach, Socastee, North Myrtle Beach, Garden City, Little River, Andrews, Georgetown, Murrells Inlet, Conway, Longs, Bucksport, Loris, Green Sea, and Aynor.

“Waves of showers and thunderstorms will produce heavy rain through this evening. Many coastal areas have picked up over twice our normal rainfall over the past week. A widespread 2 to 3 inches of rain with local 5 inch amounts could create flash flooding. If heavy rainfall occurs during the afternoon high tide, flash flooding can easily develop in low-lying areas near the coast,” according to the NWS forecast.
