Flood watch issued in thirteen West Virginia counties, National Weather Service



CHARLESTON A flood watch has been issued for thirteen counties in the Mountain State.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for the West Virginia counties of Boone, Cabell, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Putnam, Roane, Wayne, Wirt, and Wood.


That watch will last from two o’clock Tuesday afternoon until Thursday morning at eleven o'clock.


Excessive runoff could result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. In heavy rains, creeks and streams run the risk of rising out of their banks. Extra caution is advised to drivers, as low-water crossings could potentially be flooded.


The National Weather Service advises citizens to monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
