Certain regions got hit hard by Friday night's heavy rains.

There was even a water rescue in Randolph County. A man had to be evacuated from his trailer from the flood waters. Many emergency service organizations responded to fender benders, along with people getting stranded from their cars. 

This happened in counties like Barbour and Upshur. The Tygart River and the Buckhannon River were swollen from the downpour.

Road closures were another issue. One firefighter said flooding oftentimes leads to these kind of situations.

Buckhannon firefighter Joey Baxa said, "During flooding we usually see estranged motorists in high water and we see minor vehicle accidents due to people driving too fast on wet roads."

One main said the weather ruined his plans for the day.

Upshur County resident William Trinkle said, "When I went through town, I couldn't get to the gas station. I had plans to go to Adrian, but I heard it's filled with water, can't get it in. It's pretty bad up there."

According to weather experts, nearly two inches pounded the area throughout Friday.
