The flood waters have led to one death in Patrick County. Emergency crews say they responded to a call of flooding in the 13-hundred block of Elastic Plant Road, and found a mobile home washed off its foundation. A ground search turned up the body of a woman about 75-yards from the home. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of the next of kin.

These are pictures from the Reserve Avenue area. That's along the Roanoke River, near Victory Stadium.

We saw a National Guard vehicle that was high enough to get out before the waters rose any more. But some people who had no ride chose to walk it out in waters that were almost waist-deep.

Washington trailed 21-to-10 until Mark Brunell (broo-NEHL') fired his second touchdown pass of the night to Rod Gardner with four-30 remaining. Then it came down to the wire.
With 13 seconds left, Brunell completed a pass to James Thrash to the Dallas 21, but the Redskins couldn't stop the clock. The Cowboys won it 21-to-18. It's their 13th win over the Redskins in 14 meetings.
