HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The City of Huntington says residents along Fourpole Creek should prepare for possible flooding.

Officials report heavy rainfall is causing high water in Green Valley along Fourpole Creek.

On its Facebook page Monday morning, the City of Huntington posted the following message, “Residents of Enslow Park and the Southside who were flooded in May should consider moving their vehicles to higher ground NOW. Residents with special medical needs should consider evacuating the area NOW.”

Cabell’s EMS director says there are several spots of high water in the county, including 16th Street.

“Our concerns started out in the Green Valley area and it was flooding. Normally in about an hour, it comes down toward Fourpole and it affects the Enslow Blvd. area,” Cabell County EMS Director Gordon Merry said. “Our concern is, I mean the Mayor’s, mine, everyone, is to tell people get there stuff out now. Move their cars. If they have medications and things, get it now. Move your furniture.”

“It may not flood but at least we’re giving them a warning this time and hopefully we can have a better outcome.”
