Video: Burning house floats down Howard’s Creek in White Sulphur Springs

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Significant flooding in White Sulphur Springs Thursday afternoon included a burning house floating down Howard’s Creek in White Sulphur Springs.

Howard’s Creek runs through the town and came out of its banks following several inches of rain during a short period of time.

At one point, the intersection of U.S. Route 60 and Interstate 64 at Hart’s Run looked like a lake.

A White Sulphur Springs resident posted on Facebook Thursday night.

“Please pray for our neighbors. They are trapped in their attic with small children. Our other neighbors are on their kitchen counter..it has washed away the barn..cars..buildings. .flooded houses..My sister has lost her pets…it is devastating…please pray for our small town.”

The National Weather Service Office in Blacksburg, Va. told MetroNews Thursday night at 9:30 the 24-hour rainfall totals for Greenbrier County included 9.37 inches at Maxwelton, 8.17 inches at White Sulphur Springs and 7.53 inches in Rainelle.
