Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

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

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