New Martinsville Flood 2004

The following pictures were taking during the weekend of September 18-19, 2004.  They were donated by Cara Snyder and are very much appreciated.  The storm hit the area Friday September 17 with major flooding in the Jacksonburg, Pine Grove, Reader and New Martinsville area's.  The Ohio River crested Sunday at the Hannibal Locks and Dam at 41.1 feet.  This is 6.1 feet above the flood stage.  The USAF Reserve was called in and a massive clean up is in progress in the Wetzel County areas.
