Since midday Wednesday, Pittsylvania County has seen constant, steady rain during the first big rainstorm of 2020. 

A thick cloud cover held the county in semi-darkness while booming thunder heralded several inches of rain, causing flash floods in low land areas. 

Chris Slemp, Director of Public Safety, reminded drivers to exercise extreme caution when driving in low laying areas that may accumulate large amounts of water.

Slemp also stressed that a driver should never attempt to drive across a flooded road, as it can be difficult to judge how deep the water goes, especially at night.

The National Weather Service has said that the rain is expected to continue until midnight, possibly adding another inch of rain.
