CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina escaped most of the problems associated with strong Southern storms that have killed at least 18 people.

But the Charlotte area was dealing with flooding from heavy rains early Monday.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for urban areas and small streams in Charlotte, as well as for several streams in Cabarrus County just east of Charlotte.

No serious injuries have been reported.

Fallen trees and flooded roads were reported around the Charlotte area.

The heaviest rain had moved out by 5 a.m., but some areas were still experiencing some flooding. Parts of the city received nearly 2 inches of rain.

Duke Energy reported about 900 customers without electricity in North Carolina.
