McDowell Still Recovering from Flood
Although all roads are passable, emergency services in McDowell County are still working to clean up the mess after recent flooding.
Heavy rains Wednesday night washed away roads and flooded the Panther area in McDowell County. The Office of Emergency Services is actively looking for a location for residents to put debris.
Dispatchers say about 100 people have been effected by this flood.
The McDowell Health Department will be offering well testing and tetanus vaccinations early this week. Emergency services say that exposure to flood water alone is not reason to get a vaccine. Only people who have not had a Td booster in the last ten years or five years if they have a severe wound.
