All Eyes On The Water

Ice, ice, baby.

That's what people living along the Little Kanawha River see.

And it's something to worry about because of flooding in an area that's seen it so many times.

It's a result of the recent subzero cold, and it's only begun to break up with the warmer weather.

"The barge traffic is moving on the Ohio River. The Little Kanawha River is the one we're going to have to watch and see what effect this ice moving might have on both rivers, really," says Ed Hupp, Wood County EMS Director.

The office of emergency services is also watching the rivers for high water, as Monday's snow melts.

It says people who live along the rivers should do that too.
