SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - Nearly stationary storms hovered over southern Kanawha County for over an hour and a half on Saturday evening, with a fairly steady display of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes. The areas most affected were south of Charleston along Corridor G, particularly Ruthdale and the Southridge Centre / Trace Fork shopping complexes.

Shoppers, moviegoers and diners at Southridge and Trace Fork were repeatedly startled by several very close, loud lightning strikes during the course of the evening. It was difficult to stay dry, even in the short dashes across the parking lot to the car.
