should flash flood warnings be issued.




Special Statement
Issued: 11:06 PM EDT Jun. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Showers will affect Randolph... Pocahontas... eastern Nicholas...
eastern Taylor... east central Gilmer... southeastern Lewis...
Braxton... Upshur... Webster and Barbour counties...

At 1105 PM EDT, showers were located near Webster Springs, moving
east at 50 mph.

Sutton, Greenbank, Audra State Park, Webster Springs, Cass Scenic
Railroad, Belington, Gassaway, Addison (webster springs), Mill Creek,

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.
