Nina, a cat, sits inside a pet crate after being rescued from flash flooding outside a home in Rainelle, W.Va.
Steep mountains, narrow valleys and a deadly train of storms came together in West Virginia to cause horrendous flooding that killed 23 people last week, forced thousands to evacuate and destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and businesses.
Disaster Areas have been declared for 44 or the 55 counties in the state. FEMA and the National Guard have been called in and once again we see pictures of homes with the dread markings of house-to-house searches for the missing people and pets.
