* 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

  advisory area as well.

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.
