Episode Narrative With an amplified upper ridge positioned over the eastern U.S. scattered strong to severe storms developed along a slow-moving boundary. Instability and lapse-rates were sufficient to produce fairly large hail in many areas along with heavy rainfall that produced flash flooding. In parts of Franklin, Pittsylvania and Appomattox counties, rainfall of 2 to 4 inches was estimated to have fallen in a few hours. Several small streams and rivers were reported to have flooded including the upper portion of the Falling River in Campbell County.
