1200 Homes, Businesses Damaged Or Destoryed In West Virginia Flooding

 Wednesday, June 29, 2016


This week West Virginians likely will escape any more of the flooding that has wreaked havoc across several counties, taking 23 lives -- a figure authorities warned may rise. But for the families on Mill House Road in White Sulphur Springs -- many of them kin -- any new flooding could hardly make things worse. Eleven houses stood on the road near Howard Creek last Thursday. Three remain. And Belinda Scott, a spunky grandmother with a strong will to live, didn’t make it. The flood uprooted Scott’s house, which exploded after it filled with natural gas.
