On July 28, eight counties in north central West Virginia were affected by flood waters.
Mannington residents have pulled together to help each other.
The Davisson Brothers Band hauled cases of water, provided by Urse Automotive, to Mannington to help with the relief efforts. Mannington Mayor James Taylor said the community has people from all over coming to their town to lend a hand.
“We got people shoveling mud, we got people running hoses, we got people delivering goods. I mean, it just has been outstanding. It makes me humble that these kid of people have come out,” said Taylor.
The Davisson Brothers Band said it takes pride in helping out in times of need. The band said that is what they do and that is what they are all about.
“If you’ve got any extra supplies at your house or you could afford to go to the store and get it, get it and bring it down here and help these people out,” said Chris Davisson of the Davisson Brothers Band.
Taylor said cleanup is well underway in the affected areas.
A GoFundMe account and an account at the First Exchange Bank in Mannington have been set up to help aid the relief efforts in Marion County.
