The following area is affected:

  • Mecklenburg

Mecklenburg VA-
445 PM EDT WED APR 26 2017

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Southwestern Mecklenburg County in south central Virginia...

* Until 430 PM EDT Thursday

* Runoff from heavy rainfall Sunday into Tuesday will cause minor
flooding into Thursday afternoon. Inflow into the John H Kerr
Reservoir...including from the Dan River...is causing the level to
rise in the reservoir. VDOT anticipates having to close several
roads due to the flooding. A few of the roads include State Routes
688...693 and 702. Other roads may need to be closed in the
advisory area as well.

* 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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

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