Good evening. I'm Shannon Young in for Jean Jadhon. The remnants of Tropical Storm Barry may be losing strength, but flooding is still a primary concern across the southeast. Clean-up is under way in parts of Tennessee, after a weekend of damaging flash flooding. As many as 200 people were driven from their homes when the region was hit with about 12 inches of rain in a 24-hour period. Elsewhere, eastern Kentucky and western North Carolina are also drying out after severe flooding. Thousands are without power. Drew Levinson joins us live now with more.

The state health commission is telling people NOT to eat fish taken out of parts of the New River. State Commissioner of Health Anne Peteresen said that carp taken from the area are contaminated with P-C-B's.
The warning covers an area that extends from Peppers Ferry Boulevard, north of Radford, to the Virginia-West Virginia border near Glen Lyn in Giles County.
Also included in the area is the Bluestone River just south of Bluefield to the town of Yards in Tazewell County.

Petersen says only carp are affected... other types of fish have tested normal. P-C-B's are known to cause cancer in humans.
