Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 10:17 PM EDT on June 27, 2016

Expires 4:15 AM EDT on June 28, 2016


The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has issued a

* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
the city of Covington in Virginia...
Alleghany County in Virginia...

* until 415 am EDT Tuesday

* at 1013 PM EDT... rainfall of 2 to 4 inches fell across much of
Alleghany County from late this afternoon into the evening hours.
This is in addition to the excessive rain that fell last Thursday.
Although the rain has ended now... excessive runoff will likely
continue for several more hours across many parts of the County.

While flash flooding no longer appears to be a threat... high water
may remain in many areas of the County as a combination of saturated
ground and excessive runoff. Flooding has been reported along Virginia
Highway 159 just southwest of Covington as a result of Dunlap creek...
and Douthat State Park Road north of Clifton Forge as a result of Wilson
Creek. There may well be other small creeks and streams across
the County that will remain at or near bankful for the next several hours.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Alleghany...
Covington...
Clifton Forge...
Jordan Mines...
and Iron Gate.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

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.
