South Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Floodwaters are welling as rainfall from tropical depression Florence pounded southern Virginia over the weekend. Low-lying Buckshoal Road gushed with run-off from the roughly two inches of rain that Halifax County received through mid-day Sunday. Aaron’s Creek near the Halifax-Mecklenburg border (below) is poised to overflow its banks. Drivers should not endanger themselves by driving through waterlogged roads, as there is no way to know how deep or fast-moving the water is, and vehicles can be easily swept away.
