Storm Causes Road Closures and Power Outages

 RAINELLE (WVVA)- Crews worked all night Wednesday and all day Thursday to clean up debris on Route 60 and through the town of Rainelle.

A heavy storm left fallen trees and broken power lines. Mayor Andrea Pendleton describes the storm, "It started thundering and lightening you could see it and feel it, and then all at once a big gust of wind with hail following it. It was black as the ace of spade out there except. With the lightening it was like a light show."

Homes and businesses throughout the town of Rainelle were without power. AEP, emergency responders, and city officials say the power is expected to be restored by 10p.m.
