BULLETIN - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA
1009 AM EDT Tue May 23 2017

...The National Weather Service Blacksburg Va has issued
a Flood Warning for the following rivers in North Carolina...
Virginia...

  Dan River Near Danville affecting Caswell...City of Danville and
  Pittsylvania Counties
  Dan River at Paces affecting Halifax County


Heavy rainfall overnight totaling in the one to three inch range has
impacted a large portion of the Dan River Basin. Most of this rainfall
occurred rather close to the gauge locations at Paces and Danville, causing
rather abrupt height river height rises. Additional rainfall over the next
two days could provide an additional one to three inches on average across
the basin, which will cause additional rises along the Dan River today through
the day Wednesday. This will likely cause the river to rise above flood stage later
tonight at both locations, with ultimate crests occurring Wednesday morning.
Intermittent crests will likely occur at each location as the area recieves a
brief reprieve from rainfall on Tuesday.

Note: The river gauge at Paces is inoperative at this time. Technicians have been
notified.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Do not drive through flooded areas...the water may be much deeper
than you think.

Listen to noaa weather radio or your favorite media outlet for later
statements or warnings.
