Episode Narrative A cold front swept through the region on the 28th. Multiple clusters of storms accompanied the front as it progressed. One of these storms increased to severe levels over southeast West Virginia and produced large hail. Another storm produced enough rain in a short period of time to cause flash flooding.
Event Narrative As much as five inches of rain fell in only a 90 minute time period in and around the community of Zenith. Several roads, including Zenith Road, Wallace Hollow Road and County Road 29/2 - Back County Road, were inundated due to flash flooding of small streams. The flash flood waters also damaged some downstream outbuildings and vehicles.
