Marshall County is preparing for the remnants of Ida to make their way to our area.  

The county’s Emergency Management Director Tom Hart said they are expecting to see three to six inches of rain. 

Their main concern is potential flooding as the ground is already saturated. 

He has been in concoct with the statewide EMA, the National Weather Service, and the West Virginia National Guard. 

Hart suggested taking some pictures of your property now as a precaution. 

“Prior to any flooding to make sure they’ve got some recent photographs of their homes and their businesses beforehand, in the event that they would experience any flooding.  That way they have beforehand pictures that are recent.”
