Warnings & Notices

Areal Flood Watch

Expires 11:00 AM EST on January 24, 2019
Statement as of 5:24 am EST on January 24, 2019

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 11 am EST this morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of North Carolina and Virginia, including the
following areas, in North Carolina, Alleghany NC, Ashe,
Stokes, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In Virginia,
Alleghany VA, Amherst, Bath, Bedford, Botetourt, Carroll,
Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Grayson, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick,
Pulaski, Roanoke, Rockbridge, and Wythe.

creeks since the ground is frozen or still saturated from
rainfall last weekend.

* Small streams and creeks may overflow their banks. Areas of
poor drainage will also be prone to flooding, as well as roads
near creeks. Portions of the Greenbrier, Roanoke and Dan
rivers may rise to action or flood stage levels later this
week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
