Flood of 1985

A late season tropical storm, followed by a southeastern storm, resulted in heavy rainfall over much of the state.

The Cheat and Greenbrier rivers crested at record levels. Record water heights were also seen on portions of the Tygart Valley, Little Kanawha, and West Fork rivers, and on the North and South Branches of the Potomac.
