Crews will need to clean up tree issues before they can start repairing damaged lines once again. The good news is that the weather will cooperate. Temperatures are expected to drop significantly with highs only in the 70s both Saturday and Sunday before the heat starts to build again on Monday. No new storms are anticipated until the middle of the week.

Flash flood warnings until late Friday

There are flash flood warnings as well until 9:45 p.m. for the northern part of Kanawha County and until 9:30 p.m. for the eastern parts of Kanawha County and Nicholas County.
