Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has issued a Flash Flood Watch for our area from noon today until noon tomorrow.
From noon EDT today through this evening very heavy rainfall rates and multiple rounds of storms may produce flash flooding this afternoon and evening. Due to rainfall on Thursday, even only a short duration of very heavy rain may cause flash flooding.

In urban areas flooding is possible in underpass, poor-drainage areas, intersections and along steams and creeks. In more rural areas streams and creeks may also quickly rise out of their banks flooding roads and low-water crossings.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. Remember…TURN AROUND…DON’T DROWN!

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
