Residents and officials in Monongalia County kept a close eye on Deckers Creek on Wednesday because of the potential for flooding.

Water levels were high in a few spots, but officials claim there were no reports of any issues.

At one point there was a flood warning for Deckers Creek, but it expired around noon. The area got less rain than what was expected which helped keep water levels under control.

Some residents who live and work near the creek said they're glad nothing happened.

Taasha Wamsley works at a business called Public Partnerships. It's located in the area of a small bridge on White Avenue in Sabraton. Wamsley said everyone she works with was relieved that there weren't any problems.

"It was very close to the bridge and that's scary of course. But we're very relieved that nothing happened, we could get to work, and there haven't been any issues since," said Wamsley.

The immediate threat for flooding is over, but Deckers Creek is still being monitored by emergency officials.
