Flash Flood in USA on Monday, 02 September, 2013 at 01:04 (01:04 AM) UTC.

Thunderstorms sparked by a hot, humid late-summer day rocked parts of central North Carolina on Sunday, knocking out power to thousands of customers in Raleigh. Flash flooding was reported in low-lying areas as the evening wore on and rainfall accumulated. Wake County is under a flash flood warning until early Monday morning, with more storms in the forecast. Severe thunderstorm warnings blanketed the Triangle for hours during the early evening Sunday. The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings for parts of Wake, Durham, Orange and Alamance counties where rain fell at a rate of about 4.5 inches per hour. "Man, they have been loud, they have been producing a lot of rain, and these storms have tons of lightning," said WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.
