Kanawha County, West Virginia has announced a series of Halloween trick or treating cancellations due to the bad weather on October 31, 2019. Don’t worry, though. The trick or treat time and days have been rescheduled. You can see the latest times and dates later in this article. Two communities are keeping trick or treating on Halloween.

Kanawha County reported on its Facebook page that wind gusts would remain an issue throughout the evening of Halloween night. “The National Weather Service has advised Emergency Management Officials that throughout the evening there is a potential for 20 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 30-35 mph. It appears at this point, the worst of the storm is over. Due to ground conditions, caution should be used around trees as ground saturation has set in and could cause trees to uproot,” the County wrote in the afternoon of October 31, 2019.

“Appalachian Power is reporting close to 10,000 customer outages in Kanawha County. Again, downed power lines are dangerous and should not be crossed. Charged lines can cause death if crossed. Report downed power lines to AEP or 911. The Kanawha County Emergency Operations Center remains on standby as officials continue to monitor the situation and the rising number of power outages throughout the County.”
