Flash Flooding Hits Lincoln County

LINCOLN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Creeks got out of their banks and covered roads in a few parts of the region Thursday evening.

One of the areas that was hit was Frances Creek Road in the Harts area of Lincoln County.

“It was coming down the road booming," Rebecca Workman said.

Workman says it rained steadily for about half an hour. She says she came outside, and her road looked like a river.

“It just happened so quickly,” she said. “We were wading in water and everything else to try to get things out of the way of it."

Her next door neighbor’s garage was flooded.

Water also did some serious damage to part of the road, but the creek receded before any major damage was done to any of the homes.

Workman says it's been about a decade since Frances Creek flooded like this.
