Flash flood warning issued for several counties following heavy rain


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK) – The National Weather Service has issued a *Flash Flood Warning* in effect until 12:30 p.m. for several counties in West Virginia including northeastern Kanawha, northern Clay, southeastern Roane, southern Braxton, northern Webster, western Randolph, and northern Nicholas counties.

We’ve seen generally 1 to 2 inches of rain across this area this morning, with another 1/2 inch to 1 inch of new rainfall possible before noontime. With it as dry as it has been, this should not cause too much in the way of high water, but roadway ditches could fill with the excessive rainfall.

Some towns that are included in the warning include but are not limited to Sutton, Clay, Clendenin, Gassaway, Pinch, Holly River State Park, Elkview, Wallback, Harrison, Diana, Frametown, Alexander, Strange Creek, Procious, Eden, Servia, Helvetia, Pickens, Cleveland, and Little Birch.

A Flash Flood Warning has been issued for several counties in our region until 12:30 p.m.
