Rain continues to cause problems for the Ohio Valley


With weather conditions continuing to get worse, creeks and steam are on the rise.

There are many reports of tress being knocked down.

Right now officials are still monitoring possible landslides.

Ohio Valley emergency management directors are on high alert and in Marshall County’s case they started the day off with a briefing with the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security Emergency Management and with the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh and Charleston.

Tom Hart said that the creeks and streams are running high and swift but they are being monitored by law enforcement.

“The Sheriff’s Department, some of the Fire Departments, and also the Department of Highways has been out and about taking care of those issues at this point,” Marshall County Emergency Management Director, Tom Hart said. “Just with the amount of rainfall we’ve got the ground is starting to loosen up and some of those trees are starting to pull out of the ground so that’s been an issues they have been dealing with throughout the day.”

Hart said that officials are on stand-by mode but they are ready to go if or when things things get worse.
