FLOODING POSSIBLE ON ROADS IN SHENANDOAH VALLEY

STAUNTON – (6 p.m.) Motorists are warned of potential flooding conditions tonight in the Shenandoah Valley.

Due to heavy rains falling along with melting snow, flooding is a possibility in small creeks, streams, low-lying areas and roads with poor drainage due to remaining snow.

Drivers should not attempt to travel across flooded roads as it only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. In areas where 511 is unavailable, dial 1-866-MY511VA (866-695-1182) (TTY/TDD users, call 711). Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.
