Lake Wateree - 5 Day Message HistoryACTIVE
Last Update: 4/19/2015 1:50:11 PM
The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warning for a large area in the region. We are experiencing heavy runoff into the Lower Catawba-Wateree River Basin following significant rainfall and more is expected later today and tomorrow. Based on current known information and rainfall amounts Lake Wateree is not expected to spill. This projection is subject to change based on the rainfall that we actually get. The streams feeding the lower Catawba-Wateree River Basin have not crested which makes forecasting very difficult. We are closely monitoring inflows and will provide an update as needed. Please also note that the National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for the area lasting until 8 PM tonight. Please stay alert to changing conditions. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp and at 800-829-5253. For your convenience, online lake level information is now smart phone-friendly. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and provide updates if conditions change.
