Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
Officials with two Southwest Virginia hospitals have decided to close the ICU at one and move it to the other.
The Coalfield Progress reports officials with Wellmont Healthcare, which runs Lonesome Pine Hospital in Big Stone Gap and Mountain View Regional Medical Center in Norton, announced they will move their ICU staff to Mountain View.
No word on if the move will eliminate any jobs.
