flood... or experiencing high water levels. Here are some of the
larger ones...

with the river gage near Richlands at 10.1 feet and falling. Flood
stage is 10 feet. The river will fall to below flood stage in
the next hour or so.

On the Bluestone river in Mercer County... moderate flooding
continues with the latest gage reading for the river at Spanishburg

high per the newly established stream gage near Hines. The stage was
10.8 feet at 815 am and still rising... but the gage has ceased
reporting since that time.
