Roanoke...
Salem...
Vinton...
Catawba...
and Bent Mountain.

This includes the following locations the Salem Fairgrounds and
Roanoke regional Airport.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses
as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots. Obey all Road
closures and find another Route to your destination.

Keep children away from storm drains, culverts, creeks and streams.
Water levels can rise rapidly and sweep children away.

When it is safe to do so, please send your reports of flooding,
including mudslides or flooded roads, to the National Weather Service
by calling toll free at 1... 8 6 6... 2 1 5... 4 3 2 4.
