Clay County, WV is a small, incredibly beautiful rural county not far from Charleston, WV. The floods of June 2016 has had a devastating impact on the county — many people have lost their homes; others can’t afford the costs to rebuild; our infrastructure has been badly damaged. But we’re a people of strong spirit.
