WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - A Murray Energy subsidiary says it has temporarily idled an underground coal mine in Ohio County because of high water levels on the Ohio River.

WTFR-TV (https://bit.ly/1zH9Oi6 ) reports that Ohio County Coal Company, LLC announced the move on Tuesday.

The company says the high water levels have interrupted barge transportation.

The mine’s temporary shutdown will affect 383 hourly employees.

No other information was released.
