These people are good hearted people, they didn't  have much to begin with, my dad is 70 and he said it was the worst flood he has ever seen since he was born.

They need all the help and prayers they can get!

The rains just came out of nowhere, around 3:00 am in the morning.

People are blessed to be alive, there was a story about a little dog, the owners tried to save him, the water was rising fast, they could not reach him,
he was chained to his doghouse, and five hours later, after the storm had past, they rushed out to get him laying there lifeless, and a miracle happened, he was breathing, he held on, through it all, he was and is a survivor and just like the people of WV they are helping each other, they didn't wait for help to come to them, they started the minute they could, helping one another, brotherly love....no  looting, stealing, etc.

Thanks For Prayers!

God Bless!

Horrendous experience, these floods are.
My heart goes out to all those affected by this.  Thank you for sharing.  Some of the pictures just made me shudder.


  God bless,

There's a lot of weatherly conditions going on that we haven't seen in several decades; they're just now coming around again. I'm so glad you parents are safe - and the dog? Well, that's just a dad-blamed miracle.

Thanks for letting us allow our prayers.

Sounds like these people have some solid values and will be able to get through anything, My prayers are with them.
