A very wet weekend caused flooding and power outages across the High Country.

Weekend rains across the High Country have been reported ranging from as little as 3 inches to over 13 inches in various locations, leading to flooding in a number of places, including Valle Crucis, Foscoe, Todd and other locations in Watauga, Ashe and Avery Counties and even off the mountain.

Watauga County Emergency Management Director Taylor Marsh said there were numerous tree down calls in the Elk Creek Road area on Sunday, and two water rescue calls in the Valle Crucis area.

There is a very large mudslide in the 7000 block area of Elk Creek Road that has the entire road blocked. Marsh said it is unknown how long it will be before the road can be reopened.

More rain is expected in the High Country through Monday evening - as much as 1 to 2 inches of additional rainfall, and possibly more in the vicinity of thunderstorms. A Flash flood watch is in effect for the High Country from noon until 9 pm Monday night.

Flooding was also reported at locations in Wilkes, Caldwell, Burke and Catawba Counties. As much as 7 inches of rain was reported in parts of Wilkes, and flooding led to a number of evacuations.
