[SUPER=03-Roanoke Co.;]

On Poor Mountain Road in Roanoke County, a culvert gave way to flood waters after debris backed up. The water you see is several feet lower than at the height of the storm. Asphalt buckled as water rushed beneath it. VDOT crews were forced to dismantle the entire culvert because it was causing the water to snake around to a neighbor's house. For several families, the only safe way to get to the main road is now on foot.

Tech receiver Brenden Hill pled "no contest" yesterday morning to a single charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The case resulted from a party at Vick's apartment last January involving girls just 14 and 15-years old. Vick and two other players were appealing earlier convictions. Vick's case is set for a plea on Monday.
