Catawba County Emergency Management continues to monitor lake and river levels that caused the July 5 flooding in the Carpenters Cove area of Lookout Shoals.
"The recent flooding was the result of daily rainfall from June 28 through July 5", said Karyn Yaussy, Catawba County Emergency Management Coordinator. "The flooding resulted from frequent rain totaling more than five inches in some areas of Catawba County, including heavy downpours that have plagued the entire Catawba-Wateree basin. The western areas of the Catawba River, in McDowell County, have received more than ten inches of rain in the past fourteen days, causing heavy water flow through Catawba County's lakes."
This flood event did not result in any recommended evacuations or power being disconnected from homes. A few reports of small amounts of water seeping into two homes were received by Catawba County Emergency Management.
The State of Emergency in Catawba County was terminated on Monday, July 8, 2013, at 09:30 a.m. by Katherine W. Barnes, Chair of the Catawba County Board of Commissioners.
"Even though the State of Emergency has been lifted, Catawba County Emergency Management teams will remain on alert due to continued high water on Lookout Shoals Lake and weather forecasts of showers and thunderstorms continuing for the next three days," Yaussy said. "Already saturated soil means extensive runoff and an increased likelihood of downed trees in gusty thunderstorm conditions."
