Looking down at Verdunville, the damage is pretty clear.
A storm system that produced up to five inches of rain caused the Mud Fork to swell over its banks and roll toward downtown Logan.
Houses were hit with high water....cars were submerged. In an area very familiar with flooding, this was something new. Longtime residents say Mud Fork has never done this.
Five swift water rescue teams were dispatched, helping residents escape from the flooding. Emergency services coordinators say there were no injuries or fatalities.
However, there was plenty of inconvenience. With water covering County Route 5 at both ends of Verdunville, hundreds of people were trapped. That included students at Verdunville Elementary. Although safe and dry...they couldn't get home.
