Thinking of Hundred

By Staff | Jul 26, 2017

The images of Saturday’s flash flooding in Hundred are dramatic. As the cleanup commences, reports – from residents affected by the destructive waters – have us feeling quite heartbroken. Of course, we are thankful that there are no known reports of injuries. Material objects, after all, can be replaced. However, the expense for these folks is still costly. Some will have to buy new yard equipment, such as a mower or a weed-eater. Others will have to replace appliances that were damaged by floodwaters in basements – a washer or a dryer, or an air conditioning unit.

Countless residents will have to spend time and money on cleanup, sanitizing basements and picking up debris from their yards.

We are with Hundred, and we hope you are too.

We encourage folks to help in whatever way they can. We are sure some donation drives will begin popping up here and there, and we will make those known in upcoming print editions of the Wetzel Chronicle, as well as on our “Wetzel Chronicle” Facebook page. Currently, we do know that North Marion Family Chiropractic, in Mannington, is accepting donations of cleaning supplies to be distributed.

The Wetzel County Commission is also going to supply dumpsters for flood cleanup for Hundred, and surrounding areas. These dumpsters should be at the Hundred Park today.

Everyone’s thoughts and prayers are always appreciated.

The folks of Hundred are our neighbors and friends, and together we will survive this storm.
