Special Statement
Statement as of 1:07 PM EST on March 05, 2015

Here is a special river statement... concerning the great Kanawha
river...

The water level at Charleston was 27.5 feet at noon today.
Flood stage is 30 feet at Charleston.

The National Weather Service believes the Kanawha river was now in
crest in the Charleston reach of the river. In other words... the
water level should not be rising noticeably more. The crest may
last for a few hours this afternoon.

This level will continue to cause minor flooding of the most
vulnerable dips and low spots along the river... and even up the
mouths of feeder streams.

The water level today on the Kanawha river is the highest in a
few years. A higher crest of 28.7 feet occurred back in March of
2010.

Water levels on the Kanawha river around Charleston will recede
tonight... and continue at a faster rate on Friday.
