CHASE VIDEO: Flooding in and around Charleston

CHARLESTON, WV - Heavy rain amounts of up to 3 to 5 inches across the area on Wednesday caused serious flooding problems in West Virginia. Rivers in the region were on the rise and many crested above flood stage for the second time this month. The Kanawha River in Charleston crested at flood stage (30 feet) for the first time since 1955 on Thursday morning, completely submerging Magic Island and many other areas around the Kanawha Valley.

In Putnam County on Wednesday, a local TV crew shot dramatic footage of a rescue after a car drove into floodwaters on Teays Valley Road in Scott Depot (in front of the new Charter building, near the YMCA entrance). The video was shot by a WCHS-TV (Channel 8) crew and was shown on national television.

The Ohio River was expected to crest above flood stage today from Point Pleasant to Greenup, KY and points west. Most rivers in West Virginia experienced at least minor flooding problems.
