Storm dumps rain, hail on area

No major problems were immediately reported after a storm dumped up to 3 inches of rain on parts of the region Wednesday night.

Dispatchers reported nothing more than a few minor wrecks and downed trees.
"We had wind damage reports, as well as hail reports, mainly in Shenandoah County," National Weather Service meteorologist Stephen Konarik said at about 9 p.m. "That's actually where the heaviest rain fell."

No rainfall reports had come in yet, Konarik said, but according to radar estimates some areas received an inch, while others got close to 3 inches.

"We did issue a flash flood warning for portions of the area, but as of yet, we haven't had any reports of roads closed or any sort of flooding," Konarik said.

There is a chance of showers Thursday -- about a 60-percent likelihood in the afternoon -- but the risk for heavy rain and thunderstorms was pretty much past, he said.
