Heavy rain triggered flooding and at least three mudslides in southwestern Virginia on Sunday, February 11.
More than 30 roads were closed, and a shelter was opened in Wise County for those who had to evacuate their homes, a report said.
A stretch of Highway 421 also was shut after a mudslide in Lee County near Stone Creek. Another mudslide was reported on Highway 58 on Powell Mountain, according to a report. The third mudslide was reported in St. Charles.
This footage from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office shows flooding near Jonesville and the mudslide on Powell Mountain.
But while the heavy rains made a mess for some roads, residents were seen taking advantage of the floodwater. This video from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office shows three men canoeing through the floodwater.
