At 1011 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a line of strong
thunderstorms along a line extending from near Boydton to near Duart.
Movement was east at 30 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with these storms.

Heavy rain and minor flooding will also be possible with these

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.
