A series of storms that moved through Watauga County late Monday afternoon prompted the National Weather Service to issue Flash Flood Warnings for the southern portion of the county from 4:47pm until 7:45pm. Meanwhile the northern portion of the county was under a Flash Flood Advisory from 5:07pm until 7pm.
During the duration of the storms, there were no incoming reports of flooding in Watauga. In Banner Elk, in Avery County, at the police station a section of road was closed due to high water, according to the National Weather Service.
