CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Rain on Wednesday and Thursday have caused problems on the state’s roads, resulting in 49 closures across West Virginia.

The state Department of Transportation said Thursday the wet weather has caused flooding, mudslides and rockfalls.

“It is safe to say, we have our work cut out for us after the rains end,” Transportation Secretary Byrd White said.”Our crews continue to monitor and react to the effects and have worked tirelessly to do what they can during the event but, we sure could use a break in the weather.”

The state encourages motorists to slow down in less than ideal conditions.
