Special Weather Statement
Dickenson-Buchanan-Wyoming-Northwest Raleigh-McDowell-Southeast
1027 AM EST MON JAN 23 2017


At 1017 AM EST, an area of moderate to heavy rain was moving slowly
southwest through the area. This area of rain was producing rainfall
rates beeton 0.50 to 1.00 inches in an hour. As this rain moves
through, runoff will continue into small streams, creeks and
roadside ditches. This may cause minor water problems, especially in
low lying areas and poor drainage areas.

Locations impacted include...
Welch, Clintwood, Grundy, Pineville, Haysi, John Flannagan Lake,
Breaks Interstate, Davenport, Mullens, Oceana, Gary, War, Northfork,
Gilbert Creek, Mallory, Hinch, Hanover, R.d. Bailey Lake, Trammel and
Twin Falls State Park.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Slow down to reduce the chance for hydroplaning.
