Flooding continues amid state of emergency

Flood warnings continued Friday in several counties in southern and central West Virginia following a storm the day before that prompted Gov. Jim Justice to declare a state of emergency. 

“Creeks and streams have spilled over and roads are closed in numerous counties due to high water and mudslides,” the governor’s office announced in a press release.

Thunderstorms with heavy rains and strong winds hit the majority of the state Thursday night and into Friday, the National Weather Service reported.

“Be prepared for flooding across roadways this morning. Do not drive through flood waters. Turn around, don’t drown,” the weather service in Charleston said on Twitter early Friday.
