Watch these flood-prone areas

These are sites that in the past have been the scene of flooding during heavy rain events in the Charlotte region.

Remember that flooding can occur in any location that is low-lying or near streams and creeks. Motorists are reminded never to try and cross a flooded roadway, as even a few inches of water can wash a vehicle away.

A flash flood watch is posted for the Charlotte region until 6 p.m. Friday.
