* until 645 PM EST Wednesday

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
All interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

Please report high water to the National Weather Service by calling
toll free... 800-401-9535... when you can do so safely.

You may also report high water by posting your report to the
Charleston West Virginia National Weather Service facebook Page... or
by using the twitter hashtag... nwsrlx.
