News owners and residents cleaning up after a flood in Ripley

Inside the $ 7 billion merger of Sequoia Financial and Wealthstone Advisors

Just outside of town homes along Walters Run were also flooded.  Across the street, Pam Bailey’s School of Dance was also flooded. Parents of former students there came to help.  “Well I just kept wondering how high is it going to get,” said Ron Hall. He was sitting inside his home as the water started coming inside.  

Rader said a combination of getting inches of rain at one and debris coming off Route 33 clogging the drains lead to big problems for businesses like Beyond Bargains.  “It just happened so suddenly,” said Mayor Carolyn Rader. “It was just the most powerful rain consistently for such a long period of time.” 

“Cleanup is going to be going on a couple of days I’d say,” said Brad Warner. His wife owns the store.  The high water in the downtown area was a shock to many. 

Mayor Rader said first responders were also out Thursday night doing a few water rescues. Some of those rescues were because people chose to drive through high water. Emergency crews are reminding people of the safety slogan “Turn Around Don’t Drown”.  For local and breaking news, weather alerts, video and more, download the FREE WOWK 13 News App from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. “Friends and family get together to support each other and make it through,” Warner said. “That is the way West Virginia is.” 

Now Hall and hsi neighbors are left with a mountain of work and heartache. Throughout the area many are thankful that they aren’t left to pick up the pieces alone.   “There was about three to four inches in the house and it moved a couple of my buildings down there,” he explained.
