ELKVIEW, WV - Abundant moisture and a frontal boundary teamed up to trigger very heavy rain across Kentucky and West Virginia on Monday afternoon. Minor to moderate flash flooding was widespread across West Virginia as many creeks spilled out of their banks. By saturating the ground, Monday's rains could help create further problems when rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Katrina arrive in the mountain state on Tuesday and Wednesday.
