    They said 14 barges got loose north of Pike Island and 4 passed through and 8 are stuck in the Dam. Some are loaded with coal. Good thing they weren't chemicals. Scarry to think about.
    Tha level is now predicted to be about the same as last fall. Some people and businesses in the area are just getting back on their feet. Marietta is going to get the same if not more there also.

    I stoped by there on my way back from work the water below the dam by the plant was level with the road and over the road at one spot there were barges against the dam some with coal some w/out a couple got through and hit a bridge in wheeling above the dam the water along old rt 7 was pretty deep in the fields and the marina and golf coarse was pretty much under alot of people are going to loose out again and many as you said are still getting back on their feet :(
