... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 600 PM EDT for
Summers and Greenbrier counties...

At 310 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated that showers and
thunderstorms were developing over... as well as moving east back
into Greenbrier and Summers County ahead of an approaching
cool front.

The threat for flash flooding will increase as the afternoon as very
heavy rain moves back into the area. Runoff from this second round
of rain will likely result in flash flooding... and will hamper
ongoing search and Rescue efforts from record flooding that occured
late last week.

Excessive rainfall over the warned area will cause mud slides near
steep terrain. The mud slide can consist of rock... mud... vegetation
and other loose materials.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Alleghany...
Lewisburg...
Hinton...
White Sulphur Springs...
and Ronceverte.

This includes the West Virginia state Fairgrounds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you live near a flood prone waterway or area that floods during
heavy rains... please do not wait for water levels to begin to
rise... they will rise very quickly! Do not enter or cross flowing
water or water of unknown depth. Stay away from streams and creeks.

Act quickly to protect your life. Turn around... dont drown when
encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

When it is safe to do so... please send your reports of flooding...
including mudslides or Road closures... to the National Weather
Service by calling toll free at 1... 8 6 6... 2 1 5... 4 3 2 4. Reports
