All the rain and rising water forced some schools in Kanawha County to close Friday morning.

Students at Bonham Elementary in Sissonville were dismissed from school around 8:45 am Friday.

The school was evacuated just as a precaution.

There was no serious flooding from overnight. But still, parents tell us it's a problem that needs to be fixed.

Rose Guthrie of Sissonville said, "Always had problems with water here. Sooner or later, going to have to figure out something. Every year, we go through this at least three times."

Students who didn't take the bus home Friday morning were taken to Sissonville High School.

High water was also a problem in other parts of the county.

The heavy rain was causing some creeks to come out of the banks.

Alum Creek Elementary closed at nine Friday morning.

Also, students living in the Alum Creek area and attending George Washington High School and John Adams Middle School were taken home, but those schools did remain open.
