Wednesday Not even a week ago parts of
southside flooded when the Dan River
spilled over after heavy rain.

Although it has receded some, the
National Weather Service says it won't
take much for it to swell again.

At this time, emergency
coordinators are advising residents in
flood prone areas to move all valuables
to higher ground and be prepared to
evacuate just in case.
