The worst weather has moved into North Carolina. The Advocate staff will check to see if there are any damage reports. At this point, no tornado touchdowns have been confirmed officially.

Heavy rain continues to fall across Monroe County, but the tornado watch issued at 6 a.m. this morning has also expired.

Flooding has forced the closure of Old Athens Pike in Sweetwater on the Highway 11 end at least for now.

High water is also across Highway 11 near the nursing home in Sweetwater. Keep in mind roads can improve or get worse quickly and there is no substitute for common sense driving, weather officials said.
