Parts of our Local have been devastated by deadly flooding, leaving thousands homeless in West Virginia.
According to multiple media reports, West Virginia received one-quarter of its annual rainfall in a single day and multiple rivers surged to dangerous levels, including the Elk River, which broke a record at one stage that had stood since 1888.
Now ranked as the third deadliest flood in the state’s history, 23 people have been killed and 1,200 homes have damaged or destroyed.
