Flooding closes several roads in Central VA

(WWBT) - Heavy weekend rain closed several roads in Central Virginia.

When roads are flooded, officials say to not drive because floodwater might cut off access to roads.

"If your vehicle becomes surrounded by rising water, get out quickly and move to higher ground," a Lynchburg city official said.
