Flood warnings issued Roanoke and other area locations

ROANOKE (WSLS 10) – A flood warning has been issued for different parts of the area after periods of heavy rainfall on Monday.

Roanoke County and the cities of Salem and Roanoke are all under a flood warning until 11 p.m. Monday.

Although the National Weather Service says that the heavy rain has ended for the area, runoff from the rainfall continues to collect in creeks and streams, causing them to rise.
