Description: …FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT TODAY…

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* Carvins Cove Dam in northern Roanoke County.

* Through 8PM

* Emergency officials reported that the dam at Spring Valley
Lake is handling the flow well, and water has dropped.
Therefore, the threat of dam failure has eased.

* Water is still about 2.5 feet over the spillway at Carvins
Cove Dam along Carvins Creek. Additional flow from the dam
along with more rainfall would cause flooding on Palm Dale
Road and Verndale Road in the Sun Valley subdivision and Route
743 near the intersections with Plantation Road. There is no
indication that the integrity of the dam is compromised, and
this watch is precautionary.
Instruction: A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
Remember…TURN AROUND…DON’T DROWN!

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
