CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in all 55 West Virginia counties in March.

WorkForce West Virginia said Friday that five counties still reported unemployment rates of more than 12 percent, led by Clay County's 14.6 percent. Others are Webster, 13.3 percent; Wirt, 12.6 percent; and Calhoun and Roane, 12 percent.

Monongalia County continues to have the lowest rate in the state at 4.1 percent.

West Virginia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7 percent, down three-tenths of a percentage point from February's rate.
