HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Strong thunderstorms moved through much of our region Monday, dumping heavy rain, some hail -- even toppling a large tree on Marshall University's campus.

The tree fell near Smith Music Hall and Old Main. Although no one was injured, some bicycles were destroyed.

Overall, the region was spared from high water and flooding issues. Heavy rain, though, was expected to continue Monday night throughout the Kanawha Valley and areas east.
