High water causing travel delays

Several West Virginia counties have reports of high water Monday, which may cause delays in travel.

Coal River Road near Mountain View Drive closed Monday morning due to water spilling into the street.

The Tug River in Williamson rose over the weekend as did the Kanawha River. The Big Sandy and Ohio rivers are continuing to rise. The Tug Fork, Guyandotte, Levisa Fork, Kanawha and Coal rivers are cresting.

The Ohio River is expected to go up about 6 feet between now and Wednesday due to water from other rivers heading in that direction.

The Haddad Riverfront Park stage is under water. Magic Island also is flooded.

A mix of snow, sleet and rain tapered off Monday morning but is expected to clear in the afternoon.

Areas of southeast Ohio, Kentucky and northern West Virginia have slick spots on roads as temperatures are in the 20s. Parkersburg received nearly 2 inches of snow.

The Huntington and Charleston areas have mostly wet roadways, though bridges and overpasses will freeze first so drivers should be careful.
