Flood waters that had closed several roads over the weekend in Clarke County, Virginia have receded by Monday night. Although roads are now open, motorists should still use caution because as rapidly receding floodwaters have left debris and thick mud in many places.
Large carp were witnessed in the roadway in at least one location.
According to the National Weather Service, flood stage for the Shenandoah River is 13.5 feet. River gauge MILW2 at Millwood, West Virginia indicated 10.3 feet at 8:00 am Monday morning.
