that may result in bankfull being exceeded overnight.

Nutter Fort, Salem, Belmont, West Union, and Enterprise.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

Please report flooding to the National Weather Service by calling
toll free, 800 401 9535, when you can do so safely.

You may also report flooding by posting your report to the Charleston
West Virginia National Weather Service facebook Page, or by using the
twitter hashtag, nwsrlx.
