The sun came out Friday morning, and the all too familiar clean-up began.
Compared to neighboring counties, Pocahontas County was fortunate. Rainfall amounts were reported to be in the six inch range, as compared to ten inches in other areas of the state.
Small stream flooding, downed trees, mudslides and washed out road berms caused problems for the West Virginia Department of Highways, as well as for residents.
Phone outages and power outages affected several areas of the county, and power outages will continue to be a problem though the beginning of the weekend.
Early reports Thursday evening indicated that no flooding was expected on the Greenbrier River. That was later changed to a crest of 10.3 feet, just a hair above flood stage.
The crest was adjusted to 15 feet late last night, but, fortunate again, the river crested at 12 feet just before midnight.
