Heavy rain fell across portions of Hampton Roads/northeast North Carolina over the past 24 hours with some locations picking up ~10 inches! pic.twitter.com/u1xBsKGRqW— NWS Wakefield (@NWSWakefieldVA) September 21, 2016
Among the hardest hit were Chowan County and Bertie County. Pictures show roads that were completely washed out and cars that were submerged in rising water.
The dangerous driving conditions forced Edenton-Chowan Schools to close for the day.
So far, the National Weather Service reports more than 10 inches of rain fell in Chowan County. At least 9 and a half inches have fallen in Bertie County. Knotts Island, in Currituck County, received 9 inches of rain in the last two days. Virginia Beach has received more than a foot of rain.
