Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
One of the Virginia Tech students killed was originally from Oklahoma.
Lauren McCain, who was 20, was planning to major in international studies at Virginia Tech.
Before moving to Virginia, we're told she lived in the Shawnee area, and has family members in Durant.
