At 800 AM EDT, radar indicated showers and thunderstorms were
located along a line extending from 8 miles northeast of Big Otter
to near Glen to 9 miles southwest of Chesapeake. Movement was east
at 35 mph.

Locations impacted include...
Summersville, Fayetteville, Sutton, Clay, Montgomery, Chesapeake,
Ansted, Cedar Grove, East Bank, Gassaway, Glasgow, Smithers, Gauley
Bridge, Pratt, Birch River, Burnwell, Powellton, Glen, Hawks Nest
State Park and Big Otter.

THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING HIGHWAYS...
 Interstate 79 between mile markers 33 and 74.
 West Virginia Turnpike between mile markers 67 and 86.

Torrential rainfall is also occurring with these storms, and may
cause localized flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded
roadways.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams, and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

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.
