West Virginia's governor authorized a burning ban is still in effect.

The ban is on as the state continues to recover from last weekend's storms and dry weather in most parts of the state.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Friday that a combination of scarce water supplies, dry conditions and emergency personnel have been stretched thin.

The ban is effective immediately and will continue until West Virginia's state of emergency is lifted.
