... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 245 am EDT for central
Barbour County...

At 1048 PM EDT, local law enforcement reported continued flooding in
the area of Mount Liberty. Over three inches of rain have fallen.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.

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

You may also report flooding by posting your report to the Charleston
West Virginia National Weather Service facebook Page, or by using the
