“It wasn’t very pleasant it was a mess here, the flood waters came up to the wall in 2016 it destroyed pretty much everything,” says Greenbrier Recycling Shop Floorman Ronald Dotson.
Greenbrier Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Al Whitaker, said they did not receive any concerned phone calls from locals or businesses, but they’ve taken action in the worst of flood danger, and are ready to do it again when necessary.
“First thing we do is start sending out notifications and start watching. There are times that I’m traveling all over Greenbrier county,” says Director Al Whitaker. ” If it gets to where we think it’s going to be extremely dangerous then we’ll start doing our calls where we actually call the phones lines.”
While there is no immediate threat, crews remind everyone to be cautious of the high water, and if you come across a flooded roadway, turn around, don’t drown.
