West Virginia floods devastate 1,200 homes, many lives
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.
