Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 1:48 AM EST on March 05, 2015

Expires 8:45 AM EST on March 05, 2015


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

At 100 am EST... stream gages in the warned area continue to indicate
very high water levels. Widespread flooding continues to be reported
on numerous streams and creeks mainly in Tazewell and Mercer
counties but also in parts of the Greenbrier valley.

Rainfall across the area Wednesday ranged from one /1.00/ to one and
a half /1.50/ inches. This rainfall... combined with existing
snowmelt... to produce widespread flooding. An additional half-inch
/0.50/ of rain is possible between now and daybreak... which could
produce additional rises on rivers and streams. Temperatures after
daybreak are expected to fall below freezing... changing the rain to
frozen precipitation... and reducing any additional runoff during the
day Thursday. Until this takes place... flooding will continue.

There are numerous small streams and creeks that are either in
flood... or experiencing high water levels. Here are some of the
larger ones...

On the Clinch River in Tazewell County... minor flooding is occurring
near the river gage in Richlands. The river appears that it has
crested... at around 12.3 feet. Between 8pm and 1am the river level
has remained at around 12 feet. Flood stage is 10 feet. Rain
continues to fall in this area... so the river could briefly rise
again during the overnight... possibly above the earlier crest.

On the Bluestone river in Mercer County... the river is running
extremely high... with moderate flooding occurring between
Spanishburg and Pipestem. The river appears that it has crested at
Spanishburg... reaching as high as 16.8 feet. Flood stage is 12
feet. Moderate flood stage is 15 feet. Major flood stage is 18
feet. The river level has trended down a bit... upstream of
Spanishburg. The river is still rising downstream toward Pipestem.
Until the river recedes on Thursday... extensive lowland flooding
will continue along much of the river and significant portions of
Route 19 will likely remain closed near Spanishburg.

Indian Creek near Red Sulphur Springs in Monroe County is also above
its minor flood stage of 8 feet... and will likely reach its moderate
flood stage which is 11 feet. At 1am... Indian Creek near Red
Sulphur Springs was 10.7 feet and rising. Lowland flooding is likely
and some roads may be affected including County Road 23.

In addition to the flood threat overnight... mudslides may also
become a problem in steep hilly terrain. The ground is so moist
that rocks... mud and debris may fall from hillsides resulting
in blocked roads.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

For your safety... be especially cautious at night when it is harder
to recognize the dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act
quickly. Move up to higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not
stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.

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.
