Moore County to see rain from Beryl remnants
Moore County residents can expect a good soaking from the remnants of former tropical storm Beryl as it makes its way up the coast.
The National Weather Service in Raleigh said this afternoon that Moore County should expect 1-4 inches of rainfall in the wake of Beryl. Winds should not be an issue. There is also a slight flood threat in urban areas and areas of poor drainage.
At 4:30 p.m. today heavy rain began falling as Southeastern Moore County was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 5 p.m. High wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are possible with the storm that is moving north at 30 miles per hour.
Towns in the path of the storm include Aberdeen, Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Vass, Cameron and Carthage.
At 4:50 p.m. The National Weather Service rescinded the warning as the storms producing it had significantly weakened.
Beryl, which came ashore in Florida this past weekend, has been dumping rain on coastal Georgia and South Carolina, is expected to back out into the Atlantic and potentially reform into a tropical storm again.
Beryl is the second named storm in a hurricane season that does not even officially begin until Friday.
