Flooding Closes Some Loudoun County Roads

LCSO asks residents not to drive through standing water.

UPDATE 11:47 a.m. Jan. 31: Route 15 is now open between Route 50 and Harmony Church Road.

Original story:

Some Loudoun County roads are flooded in the aftermath of Wednesday night's heavy rain and storm.

In an email alert, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office asked residents Thursday to not underestimate the "force and power of water" as they continue with their daily commutes or trips.

It said regardless of how much faster or direct a flooded route might be, driving through standing water is never the safest option.

"Many deaths occur in automobiles as people and their vehicles are swept downstream. Many of these drownings are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around barriers warning that roads are flooded," the office said in the email.

"Whether you are driving or walking, if you come to a flooded road, stop and do not cross. With water across the roadway, you cannot always determine the depth of the water or the condition of the road under the water. Six inches of moving water can knock a person down and a mere two feet of water can move a large vehicle such as a bus," it continued.

The Virginia Department of Transportation listed the following roads as flooded or closed as of 9:11 a.m. Thursday. Are we missing one from the list? Add it to the comments.
