Rains waterlog several W.Va. state parks

Heavy rains could disrupt weekend plans at several West Virginia state parks.

Park officials report flooding and rising waters at Tygart Lake Marina. Visitors can check the Tygart Lake Foundation Facebook page for current conditions.

Water problems are also reported at Biennerhassett Island and the Greenbrier River Trail.

Rain has swelled the Ohio River, and Beinnerhassett Island is in the middle of the river. A breakfast cruise scheduled for Saturday has been canceled.

At the Greenbrier River Trail, officials report several slips along the trail. One is blocking the trail for about 200 feet.

To check on a park’s condition, visitors can call 800-CALL WVA.
