Monongalia County Experiences Fewer Issues From Storm Than Expected

Posted: Updated:

Monongalia County may consider itself lucky despite the snowy roads and difficult travel conditions Tuesday morning.

The Office of Emergency Management said the rains predicted for this week would have been the worst the area had seen since the 1985 flood.

And while the snowy roads did make travel more difficult the OEM said the county had fewer issues than it expected.

"Less power outages than we were expecting for the flooding and high winds," said Mike Wolfe, of MECCA 911. "But it gave us a little taste of both, and to realize that to be truly prepared we have to take things seriously, we have to prepare for them, because anything can change at any second."

Mon Power said more than 3,800 customers in Monongalia County are currently without power.
