National Weather Service issues flood warning for Stanly County

Saturday, June 29, 2013 — The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for small streams throughout Stanly County until 11:45 a.m. Saturday.

The National Weather Service is reporting that law enforcement officials have advised of several roads being closed to high water or being washed away. Water levels are rising along Rocky River.

Drivers are urged to watch for roads which have been completely washed out by flood waters and to drive slowly because wash outs will be difficult to see.

To report flooding, have the nearest law enforcement agency relay a report to the National Weather Service Forecast Office.

More details as they develop at and/or Sunday’s Stanly News & Press.

This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
