a Flood Warning for the following rivers in North Carolina...

  Pittsylvania Counties

Numerous rounds of heavy showers and thunderstorms impacted portions
of the Dan River Basin on Thursday and Friday. Runoff from these slow
moving showers and storms resulted in creek and river rises within the

to crest Flood Stage at Danville, Paces, and South Boston warning points
as early as this afternoon. Flooding is expected to continue through much
of the weekend.

Note: Additional showers and storms remain in the forecast, so future
modifications to the forecast levels may be dependent on additional rainfall
that we recieve. Expect a new update to the warning by Saturday evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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