Franklin County emergency management officials say the Boones Mill, Wirtz and Westlake areas were all hit hard by rain Monday night.
On Windy Creek Drive in Wirtz a bridge was washed out.
Waters breaking their banks are also being blamed for destroying a Franklin County landmark.
The "Blue Ridge Live Steamers" railroad club operates a miniature train on about five-acres of land on Sample Road in the county.
But, Tuesday damage from the storm was evident.
The force of the water ripped and twisted tracks from the ground.
The weather kept emergency responders busy.
"We had numerous motor vehicle accidents, several cars that people tried to cross water in the highway and became stranded," said Billy Ferguson, Division Chief of Franklin County Public Safety. "The swift water rescue team was sent out twice and wound up rescuing 4 people. No one was injured, but they had to get them out of the car and get them to safety."
While high waters have receded, you can still see where they tore their path through Sample Road. Those waters knocked down a utility box and flattened plant.
No word on how much it will cost to repair the train line, but according to the Blue Ridge Live Steamers website, donations are already starting to pour in.
