One always hopes for the best in flooding disasters, but when your house is both burning and floating down the river, it is time to move to Plan B and call the insurance company.
This scene was shot by Amanda Carper of the flooding on Big Draft Road in White Sulphur Springs, WV. West Virginians have been devastated by these storms with tragic deaths and countless homes destroyed. Relief is coming in from surrounding states but nothing can truly mitigate such losses. This burning house is someone’s home and its contents were a family’s history. It is unimaginable in the scope of such natural disasters and the toll that they take on families.
