The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
rain and snow melt in...
Tazewell County in southwestern Virginia...
Summers County in southeastern West Virginia...
Greenbrier County in southeastern West Virginia...
Mercer County in southeastern West Virginia...
Monroe County in southeastern West Virginia...

* until 845 am EST Thursday

* at 805 PM EST... stream gages in the warned area continue
to indicate significant snow melt flooding across the area and widespread
flooding continues to be reported on numerous streams and creeks mainly
in Tazewell and Mercer counties but also in parts of Greenbrier County.

Rainfall up to a half-inch /0.50/ or more is possible tonight which could
produce additional rises on rivers and streams... before a change to frozen
precipitation occurs early tomorrow morning reducing runoff sharply.

Flooding continues along the Clinch River in Tazewell County but the
river gage near Richlands crested in the past hour at 12.25 feet. Flood
stage is 10 feet. With more rainfall on the way the river could briefly
rise again later this evening possibly above the earlier crest.

The Bluestone river in Mercer County was at 16 feet just before
8 PM and still rising. Moderate flood stage is 15 feet and major
flood stage is 18 feet.

Extensive lowland flooding is occurring along much of the river and
significant portions of Route 19 are closed near Spanishburg.

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

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.

Numerous ungaged streams and creeks are also likely flooding and could
pose an equal threat.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
