Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 8:26 PM EDT on April 19, 2015

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on April 20, 2015


... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 100 am EDT Monday for
Surry... Yadkin... northwestern Stokes... eastern Wilkes... Patrick and
southeastern Carroll counties...

At 824 PM EDT... the public reported an area of very heavy rainfall
across the warned area. Up to three inches of rain have already
fallen. This has resulted in flooding of little Ivy Creek in Patrick
County with many other smaller creeks and streams near bankfull this
evening. Additional rainfall will likely result in more widespread
small stream flooding through midnight.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Mount Airy...
North Wilkesboro...
Elkin...
Wilkesboro...
and Fairview.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. It is important to know where
you are relative to streams... rivers... or creeks which can become
killers in heavy rains. Campers and hikers should avoid streams or
creeks.

When it is safe to do so... please send your reports of flooding...
including mudslides or Road closures... to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free at 1... 8 6 6... 2 1 5... 4 3 2 4. Reports
and pictures can also be shared on the National Weather Service
Blacksburg facebook Page and on twitter.
