February 23, 2003 River Flooding

Moderate river flooding struck the Charleston metro area on February 23 in the wake of heavy rains and snowmelt from the week's relentless storm system. The Kanawha River crested near 29 feet at Charleston that morning, its highest level in over 30 years. The Kanawha, Elk and Coal river valleys experienced widespread high water and backwater flooding.
