GALLIA...JACKSON...MORGAN...ATHENS... VINTON AND NORTHWESTERN WOOD
COUNTIES...

At 214 PM EST, showers with heavy rain were located near Lake Hope
State Park, moving northeast at 50 mph.

Locations impacted include...
Parkersburg, Athens, Belpre, Jackson, Wellston, Nelsonville, New
Lexington, Glouster, McConnelsville, Mcarthur, Beverly, Albany,
Shawnee, Coolville, Rutland, Chesterhill, Lake Hope State Park,
Vienna, Washington and Tuppers Plains.

This includes Route 50 in West Virginia between mile markers 1 and 7.

Heavy rainfall is also occurring with these showers, 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.

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.

At 141 PM EST, an area of heavy rain was clustered over Davenport,
moving northeast at 55 mph.

Locations impacted include...
Beckley, Welch, Richwood, Clintwood, Marlinton, Grundy, Pineville,
Haysi, Greenbank, Breaks Interstate, Davenport, John Flannagan Lake,
Cass Scenic Railroad, Babcock State Park, Oak Hill, Mullens, Mount
Hope, Mabscott, Oceana and Sophia.

This includes the following highways...
 West Virginia Turnpike between mile markers 29 and 60.
 Interstate 64 in West Virginia between mile markers 120 and 136.
 Route 19 between mile markers 1 and 14.

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

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.

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.

...Strong Wind Gusts and Wet Soils Will Continue to Uproot Trees
Across North Georgia...

Wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph will be possible through the rest of
the day for portions of northern Georgia. These enhanced wind
speeds combined with extremely saturated soils from the persistent
rain have resulted in conditions very susceptible for trees to
become uprooted and blown over. Trees may be blown onto
structures, roadways or powerlines causing further power outages
across the area.
