On June 30, 2016, our neighbors in the west (West Virginia to be exact) experienced what is now considered one of the worst floods in the state's history. Heavy rainfall caused flash flooding across the state. 23 lives were taken.
Nearly 1,200 homes were severely damaged or completely destroyed. In some cases, the flooding waters reached rooftops. Bridges were swept away all over the state, and a wide array of other buildings were completely destroyed. Though the Greenbriar Hotel had to shut down and was forced to cancel a major golf tournament, the hotel graciously opened its doors to residents in need of shelter, free of charge.
Here's a snapshot of the devastation:
