Update on Flooding in Marlinton

God is sooooo good! No water got into the Elementary school- it got right up to it, but did not get in. That is the stories I am hearing over and over again from homeowners and business. Some business and homes had 4-6 inches of water- while some the water just got very very close to coming in - but did not!! There were some though along the river that I am sure lost a lot.

The kids are even back in school today and all roads are open. Our town crew done an awesome job at cleaning up the flood debris after the water went down.

I saw your blog on my friend's blog (CircleCliff, The Harwards) Anywho...I saw Marlinton, and thought...I should check that out since my grandaddy lives in Marlinton. BOY am I glad I did...I will have to give him a call to see if he was affected by the flooding. I live in NC and the river here is rising above flood level. We will continue to keep all y'all in Marlinton safe and well.
