Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 2:16 PM EST on March 04, 2015

... A Flood Warning for rain and snow melt remains in effect until 845
PM EST Wednesday for Tazewell... Summers... Greenbrier... Mercer and Monroe counties...

At 200 PM EST... several stream gages continue to indicate flooding
across the warned area and there have reports of widespread flooding of creeks
and streams in both Tazewell and Mercer counties.

Rainfall amounts of 0.50 to 0.75 inches of rain fell overnight and early
today along with rapid snow melt which added to the flooding. The snow
is mostly gone across Tazewell and Mercer but plenty of snow remains
across Greenbrier County.

The heaviest rainfall today has remained west of the warned area but
additional rainfall up to a half-inch /0.50/ is likely late this afternoon
and evening which could produce renewed rises on rivers and streams... before
a change to frozen precipitation occurs.

Flooding continues along the Clinch River in Tazewell County. The
river gage near Richlands was at 11.71 feet just before 2 PM and
still rising slowly. Minor flood stage is 10 feet and moderate flood
stage 13 feet. The river appears to be nearing crest but will continue
to rise this afternoon with a crest of 12 to 13 feet late this afternoon.

The Bluestone river in Mercer County was at 13.50 feet just before
2 PM and still rising but the rate of rise has slowed and it should
crest between 14 and 15 feet later today. Minor flood stage is 12 feet and
moderate flood stage is 15 feet. Extensive lowland flooding is
likely along much of the river and several roads will be affected...
including parts of Route 19 near Spanishburg.

Brush Creek in Mercer County is also still rising and could produce
flooding near and west of Princeton.

The East River near Willowton in Mercer County has crested just below
flood stage of 9 feet and is begining to fall.

Indian Creek near Red Sulphur Springs in Monroe County is nearing its
minor flood stage of 8 feet and should exceed that level in the next hour
or so. Lowland flooding is likely.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

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.
