... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 430 am EDT for
northwestern Caswell... northeastern Rockingham... western

central Bedford counties and the city of Danville...

At 1130 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated slow moving thunderstorms

rain have already fallen. Additional rainfall up to one and a half
inches are possible with these storms.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...

and Yanceyville.

Watch for water problems along Cascade creek... Tanyard creek... Sandy
Creek and White Oak creek.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

When it is safe to do so... please send your reports of flooding...
including mudslides or Road closures... to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free at 1... 8 6 6... 2 1 5... 4 3 2 4. Reports
and pictures can also be shared on the National Weather Service
Blacksburg facebook Page and on twitter.
