From Erin Barnett, WSLS reporter in the field

The rain continues in the Town of Buchanan, where the James River has reached over 17 feet according to Botetourt County Emergency Management.

Several roads are closed off where high water has taken over, including Lowe Street.

We talked with one homeowner who has a property on the river. He tells WSLS he can only get to his river house by foot at this time.

We will continue to update you on the situation.
