The Flood Wrap Up

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- If there's good news in any of this severe weather we’ve been experiencing, it's that round =two won't be as widespread.

We've been told for days the high water was coming. For many, the alarm this morning was drowned out by thunder and lightning. It was a wake-up call that many people needed to pro-active, just in case.

Sue Hanshaw’s hoping a little work now, will save a lot more later. She lives in a Huntington neighborhood that is prone to flooding and the water’s high and loud.

Hanshaw said, “When you see it coming, when you see the water coming, you don't have time for anything else, but watch it come. So we're getting it ready now.”

The rain pounded the region this morning, now there’s a threat for round two. Much of the ground's too soggy to hold much water and all day it just kept creeping up.

All of the schools in Putnam County closed early and sent kids home. The challenge with this was getting them some when their parents didn’t answer the phone.
