People are just now starting to survey the damage. Flash flooding ripped homes from their foundations, washed away cars and covered roads in Richlands, Cedar Bluff, Middle Creek and Raven. Most of the damage and mudslides happened on Route 67. That road is still shut down, along with numerous secondary roads. No major injuries are reported, but several people were evacuated from their homes last night. A shelter has opened at the Richlands Police Department. Officials expect to spend most of the day taking damage estimates.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers say a prank led to the death of a man in Roanoke last year.
Michael Keith Williams is accused of stabbing Jonathan Freel outside the All Sports Cafe in April of 2003.
Prosecutors say Williams was offended when Freel gave a wedgie to one of his friends.
After Freel ripped the man's underwear, a fight broke out in a nearby field.
Prosecutors say Williams walked away, hands bloody, while Freel collapsed, stabbed in the stomach.
He died at the scene. Williams is claiming self defense.
His three-day trial continues today in Roanoke Circuit Court.
