AUGUSTA COUNTY -- A picture of a school bus going through flooded waters raised concern among parents. A WHSV reporter spoke with the district superintendent about how schools deal with this flooding.

The district does have alternative routes for bad weather. The superintendent takes a look at the roads before making a decision to cancel school because of flooding.

He said the driver in the case met with the transportation director and that they reviewed proper procedures for bad weather.

"She's a popular bus driver and a longtime employee and transports students safely. We don't believe there were any students on the bus at that time," said Augusta County Superintendent Dr. Chuck Bishop.

We spoke with the bus driver and she had no comment.
