KANAWHA COUNTY, W. Va. (WSAZ) -- High water is causing problems in Kanawha County Tuesday morning.

High water has been reported in the 5200-block of Doc Bailey Road between Speedway and the Post Office in Cross Lanes.

Kanawha County Dispatch tells six to eight inches of water has been reported at 150 Pinch Rd. in a blind curve, while the east bound lane of McCorkle Ave., in South Charleston, is covered in water at the 3100-block.

High water has also been reported at the intersection of Greenbrier St. and Airport Rd.

A caution advisory for motorists using those roadways has been issued by the Emergency Management Office.

Meanwhile, the 1000-block of Smith Creek Road just outside South Charleston city limits is closed.

Emergency crews at the scene tell there are trees down on the road and in to some power lines.

Crews believe the trees fell because the ground is so soft from all the rain.

Smith Creek Road is expected to be closed until at least 1 p.m. Tuesday.
