West Virginia Flooding Update

As of 9am there were still 32,170 homes in West Virginia without power.

This catastrophe occurred Thursday as torrential rains fell throughout the day after heavy rains two days before.
In the area around White Sulphur Springs, the rainfall of 8 2/3rd inches in 24 hours, was an event with a probability of 0.001 in any given year.

The area around White Sulphur Springs, home of The Greenbrier resort, was especially hard hit with more than 10 inches over the mountains above the resort.

I wish to salute my colleagues at AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions for providing outstanding warnings of the floods to our clients.

Note: The PGA Greenbrier Classic golf tournament schedule for July 7-10 has been cancelled due to damage to the course.
