Good morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom......
In Giles County, the New River rose several feet this morning,
But it now looks like the town of Narrows may have escaped a second round of major flooding.
It was a different story last night, when more than half a dozen people had to be rescued by boat.
Meanwhile, we'll have a chance to dry out over the next few days, as sunshine re- enters the forecast.
Meteorologist Leo Hirsbrunner has details up next... but first..

The excessive rain this year has hurt many farmers crops, but they have chosen to look on the brighter side.

Danny Johnson of Johnson's Orchards says he's lost about 10-thousand apple bushels as a result of flooding and Hurricane Isabel. And at five dollars a bushel, that's 50-thousand dollars down the drain. But, Johnson says he'd rather be in the position he's in now, than where he was a couple of years ago.
