Saturday night: Mild, with periods of rain.

Lou Vargo, Wheeling-Ohio County Emergency Management Agency director, said there was no creek flooding in Wheeling or Ohio County Sunday.

"We still want people to be aware of their surroundings, especially those along creeks and streams, which could flash flood if a heavy band of rain comes through", Ober said.

So the rain will continue tonight, and we do have the river/stream flood warning in effect until Wednesday, but certain rivers will likely have that warning extended.

Roads are closed throughout the area along the river.

He also asks that residents call their local city, county or Red Cross if there is anyone who needs assistance.
