The rain has started to flood in some areas of the Valley.

Police and road workers were out Monday night in some of those areas.

One bridge in Harrisonburg flooded, and if the rain continues, roads like that one may not be safe to drive on.

One neighbor who lives by the bridge says they're used to flooding, but people who drive by might not know how bad it can get.

"It gets really serious here at times, it just tends to be a real hazard because there's a turn on the other side of the bridge which makes it worse for people, and I think sometimes they don't realize it's pretty dangerous when it's raining like this," said Michelle Diehl.

She says right now she's more concerned about her daughter who lives in Delaware since she had to evacuate for this storm.

The Shenandoah County Emergency Communications Center says they've been getting lots of flooding in the area too.

They want to remind you to be safe if you have to drive.
