Drivers who thought they could get through the high water, got in trouble yesterday evening.

The Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department responded to two separate incidents. One on Leafbank Rd. where a vehicle tried to get through back water of the Little Kanawha.

The second was on Russett Rd., which is covered by water in two places. That driver tried to get through a long stretch, drowning out the vehicle.

Neighbors said the driver walked through the water and climbed a nearby hill.

A car was completely submerged along the West Fork, Chloe-Minnora.

No one was injured.
