Dangerous and Potentially Life Threatening Heavy Rainfall Leading to Widespread Flooding Across Much of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
A stalled warm front continues to promote prolonged and widespread flooding across much of east Tennessee and southwest Virginia.
Many roadways are inundated by flood waters. This is a potentially life threatening situation. Motorists are strongly urged to use caution and whatever you do, do not drive into flood waters, and do not drive around flood barriers.
Lastly, saturated soils combined with heavy rainfall will lead to additional mudslides on steeper slopes.
