STANLEY, Va. (WHSV) -- Page County is one local area to see flooding as roads are still closed and water is running over some of them.

One intersection has become completely taken over by a creek. Water is everywhere and there is debris up and down the road as Stanley was hit hard in Thursday's storm.

Dovel Hallow Road is closed Friday due to flooding. Water is still running strong as bottles, papers and all sorts of debris are littered across the area.

For people like Louis Sedmock, who lives on the road, this storm was a scary one, "I woke up around 12 o'clock and heard a real loud noise. You couldn't even see the bridge because water was over to it. I had two vehicles over here. I had a station wagon. I said 'I have to get them out of here.' I walked out to them and water was up to my knees. I've been here a lot of years, but it has never been this bad. This was the worst I had seen it"

It will be a busy rest of the day and weekend for crews in Page County. Dovel Hollow Road is just one of the sites hit hard by the storm.

The rain also caused problems on Route 211 with reports of at least two mudslides and trees down. Crews were on the scene to clean-up 211 Friday morning. One lane was closed for a time, but other drivers said it didn't have a big impact on their Friday morning commutes.
