Extreme flooding across parts of southeastern West Virginia June 22-24, 2016 affected numerous communities and roads, as well as Forest Service facilities. The Cranberry Mountain Nature Center is closed until power can be restored. The District Offices at White Sulphur Springs and Richwood are also without power but remain open, wilth limited services.
The Williams River Road is closed between Tea Creek and the Forest boundary near Dyer, until further notice.
Contrary to reports on social media, the dam at Summit Lake functioned as intended and the dam was not breached.
Visitors to the flood affected areas are encouraged to be extra aware of their surroundings as there may still be trees falling due to loosened soils; shoulder damage on roads; gravels displaced; and heavy equipment working on restoration efforts.
Changes will be posted as available.
