The debris might be lifting off the streets of Follansbee, but there is still big work to be done for many as they clean out their homes and businesses.
To try to help those clean up efforts, Kyle McConnaughy and his wife Nicole collected donations all day Wednesday at Generations in Wheeling.
They said they able to stuff their truck full of supplies, and they’re going to deliver them as soon as possible.
After seeing pictures of the devastation, Kyle and Nicole decided to take the day off from their business Smash Mutlimedia to help out.
Their idea circulated around Facebook and tons of people, even the Ohio County Dog Warden, stopped by to drop off everything from cleaning supplies to bottled water, brooms, buckets, and money.
Kyle says helping out is personal for him he knows what it’s like to be affected by a flood.
“I know about 2004 there was a huge flood that came through and I was affected by that flood and I had about 7,000 dollars worth of stuff that was ruined for my business, so that’s part of why we decided to help out and start collecting donations and just take the day off,” said Kyle McConnaughy.
Kyle and Nicole will drop off all of the supplies at the EMT center on the North end of Follansbee
