Millions threatened by flood in Virginia and Tennessee

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

The Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states are bracing for a round of strong thunderstorms and the threat of flash flooding.A system of storms carrying heavy rain that left hundreds of roads flooded in eastern Tennessee over the weekend is slowing moving northeast.

There’s a high risk of flash flooding from Charleston, SC to Fayetteville, NC where residents could see 6 to 10 inches fall through Tuesday morning, CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.
Over the weekend, storms carrying about 2-4 inches of rain caused flash flooding in areas parched from drought in Tennessee and southwestern Virginia. Schools in more than a dozen districts in eastern Tennessee and southwest Virginia are closed Monday to ensure safety as the water recedes.
