A line of storms swept through the Kanawha Valley on Friday evening, leaving more flooding and damage in their wake.

Residents in from Saint Albans to Sissonville and many points in between reported high water as the storms moved through just before 7 p.m.

A number of water rescues kept emergency workers and fire department personnel busy. Some of the worst hit parts of Kanawha County included Sissonville and Eden's Fork.

The water rose up quickly in people's yards, cutting off small communities and forcing many to move to higher ground.

"Just in the short term, we want people to be careful in light of the heavy downpours and the hail. You're likely to see high water on the roadways and ponding. It's best to stay put until it passes," said StormTracker 13 Chief Meteorologist Spencer Adkins.
