...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 430 PM EDT FRIDAY FOR

Runoff from heavy rainfall earlier this week will cause minor
flooding through this afternoon. Inflow into the John H Kerr
Reservoir...including from the Dan River...is causing the level to
rise in the reservoir. VDOT and local law enforcement continue to
report numerous road closures due to the ongoing flooding. A few of
the roads include State Routes 688...693 and 702. Additional road
closures are possible early this morning in the advisory area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Clarksville, Boydton, Buffalo Springs, Richardson, Buffalo Junction,
Finchley, Skipwith and John H Kerr Reservoir.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
