Raleigh, NC-- Heavy rains are bringing flooding to parts of North Carolina. Flooding prompted the Red Cross to open a shelter in Orange County on Sunday night. The shelter at Smith Middle School in Chapel Hill housed some of the two dozen Carrboro residents forced from their homes by the flooding.
The National Weather Service also warned of potential problems in Alamance, Chatham, Guilford, Lee, Moore and Randolph counties Monday morning. A flash flood warning was posted in Anson, Montgomery, Richland and Stanley counties.
Forecasters said there was a risk of flooding in Transylvania and Henderson counties in western North Carolina and in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties in the southeast.
Aflash flood watch was in effect across most of central and eastern North Carolina through Tuesday.
