   If the remnants of Hurricane Ian bring heavy rains to the area this weekend , residents should take extra care if driving and be prepared in case they lose power , says August Vernon , the emergency management director for Winston - Salem and Forsyth County .
   As of 11:30 a . m . today , the National Weather Service in Raleigh was forecasting up to two to six inches of rain for central North Carolina from Friday through mid - day Saturday . However , the actual amount of rainfall could vary , depending upon t......he track of the storm and the speed with which it moves through the Triad .
   Heavy downpours could result in flooding in low - lying sections of road . Drivers should never attempt to drive through flooded roadways . Only 12 inches of rushing water can carry away most cars and just 2 feet of rushing water can carry away SUVs and trucks .
   The combination of wet ground and wind gusts of up to 40 mph could blow down weak or leaning trees and could lead to isolated power outages . Residents should have a supply of non - perishable food and flashlights or battery - powered lanterns .
   “Although the severity of the storm at this point is expected to be limited , storms can be unpredictable , ” Vernon said . “Localized flooding or power outages can happen anywhere and residents should make sure they are prepared for the worst . ”
