Emergency managers evacuated 2,000 people early Wednesday after determining the Lake Tahoma dam in western North Carolina could fail. Mandatory evacuations were ordered for residents in the area.

The Lake Tahoma dam is now in "imminent danger" of failure, according to authorities who are warning residents in McDowell County to immediately move to higher ground. Farther north in Virginia's Madison County, sheriff's officials said rescuers are seeking a female reported missing in high waters there.

Schools in the county were closed due to poor road conditions. The emergency has been canceled and the evacuation order was rescinded, McDowell County Emergency Management said in an update. At least one person was killed and rescuers were searching for others. "It was a constant rain but not a heavy rain", Regina Myers, emergency management director in Walker County northwest of Birmingham, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying.
