High Water, Flooding Reported Throughout Kanawha County

KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The rainstorms Tuesday caused problems all across Kanawha County.

First responders are warning of high water being reported across the area. Several calls have come into dispatchers to alert them of the problems.

If you are headed to an area prone to flooding, please make plans to take an alternate route.

In Kanawha County, serious flooding has been reported in the Cross Lanes area on Goff Mountain Road and in St. Albans at the Boone underpass.

An ambulance was stuck in high water on Goff Mountain Road.

A Flood Watch that was issued for much of the region through 1 a.m. Wednesday expired late Tuesday night as heavy rains moved away.

It's important to remember a small car can flood in as much as 6 inches of water. Never attempt to drive through high water.

The heavy rain also led to Monmouth Street on St. Albans being covered. Neighbors there say it's a recurring problem.

"My basement right now probably has four inches of water in it again," Karen Kincaid said.

Other areas affected by potential flooding include Boyd and Lawrence counties in Kentucky. Wayne, Lincoln, Putnam, Roane and Clay counties in West Virginia were under a Flood Warning until 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.
