An army of linemen rolled out out of South Charleston to make repairs on Day 11. The National Guard rolled out of Fayetteville to check on the health and safety of powerless, sometimes, trapped storm victims and to deliver ice, water and meals.
The guard played a key role in clearing roads to cut off storm victims. This wasn't the only county where they had to cut there way in and sometimes out.
Along Armstrong Creek, where a guard kitchen has been feeding people and bringing water, people were grateful. Linemen hit it hard this day while horses unrestrained by a powerless electric fence hit the road.
Utility problems here will keep at least 50 guardsmen on the job in Fayette County Wednesday.
