CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – The National Weather Service is reporting strong thunderstorms are affecting parts of our viewing area with winds in excess of 40 mph and penny-sized hail are possible.
Reports are coming in through the Kanawha County Dispatch of blocked roads, such as Smith Creek Road in Tornado where there are trees and logs across the roadway blocking both lanes. Dispatch also says high water is expected in many areas and asks people to remember to turn around if you come to standing water or high water.
Dispatch says high water has closed Seventh Avenue in Saint Albans between the 800 to 1000 blocks.
Take a look at some of the photos our viewers have sent in of the hail storm:
