Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 4:15 PM EST on March 04, 2015

Expires 8:45 PM EST on March 04, 2015


... A Flood Warning for rain and snow melt remains in effect until 845
PM EST Wednesday for Tazewell... Summers... Greenbrier... Mercer and Monroe counties...

At 402 PM EST... stream gages continue to indicate flooding across the warned
area and there have been reports of widespread flooding of creeks
and streams in both Tazewell and Mercer counties and isolated reports from
Greenbrier County.

The heaviest rainfall today has remained west of the warned area but
additional rainfall up to a half-inch /0.50/ is possible tonight which
could produce renewed rises on rivers and streams... before a change
to frozen precipitation occurs.

Flooding continues along the Clinch River in Tazewell County. The
river gage near Richlands was at 12.17 feet just before 4 PM and
still rising slowly. Minor flood stage is 10 feet and moderate flood
stage 13 feet. The river appears to be nearing crest but will continue
to rise slowly for a few more hours with a crest near 13 feet early
this evening.

The Bluestone river in Mercer County was at 14.40 feet just before
4 PM and still rising but the rate of rise has slowed and it should
crest near 15 feet by this evening. Minor flood stage is 12 feet
and moderate flood stage is 15 feet. Extensive lowland flooding is
likely along much of the river and several roads will be affected...
including parts of Route 19 near Spanishburg.

Brush Creek in Mercer County is also still rising and could produce
flooding near and west of Princeton.

The East River near Willowton in Mercer County has crested just below
flood stage of 9 feet and is beginning to fall.

Indian Creek near Red Sulphur Springs in Monroe County is also above its
minor flood stage of 8 feet and is still rising. Lowland flooding
is likely and some roads may be affected including County Road 23.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

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
