The Gilmer Free Press

Heavy rain was driving up water levels in parts of Central and Southern West Virginia with areas from Huntington through Charleston to Sutton and down into Mingo County and Wayne County taking the hardest hits.

By Tuesday morning, more than 1 in. of rain had fallen on already saturated areas and another inch was possible before the storm system moved out of West Virginia late Tuesday.

In isolated areas, more than 2 inches of rain was a possibility during the storm.

The greatest flooding threats were in low-lying areas, especially along roads adjacent to creeks and streams.

It is mostly small stream and highways (flooding), but we are watching the rivers start to come up across the area.

The following counties were under Flood Warnings at varying times on Tuesday:

Pocahontas, Nicholas, Randolph, Braxton, Barbour, Webster, Upshur, Lewis, Raleigh, Nicholas, Mingo, Logan, Lincoln, Fayette, Clay, Boone, Wyoming, Webster, Wayne, Putnam, Mason, Jackson, Gilmer, Calhoun, Kanawha, Cabell and Roane.

Flood Watches were in effect in other counties.

Schools in Roane County and Lincoln County were closed because of high water on Tuesday.

Crews with MonPower and Appalachian Power were working to restore power to more than 2,000 homes and businesses as of Tuesday morning.

The chance for more rain will continue through the rest of the week across the Mountain State, according to the National Weather Service.
