State of Emergency, and an Article for FFG

West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has declared a state of emergency following Friday night’s powerful storms.

An estimated 500,000 people are without power in W.Va. in at least 27 counties.

Daytime shelters are being set up for people without power.

In Kanawha County, shelters will open at 9:00 a.m. Saturday.
The locations are the Kanawha City Recreation Center, the King Center on Donnally Street and the North Charleston Recreation Center.

The American Red Cross will be setting up shelters in other areas. You can contact your local Red Cross shelter for more information.

In Ohio, there are currently more than 1 million power customers without electricity.

Above is the Derecho “super storm” that hit us, the system would cover the entire state in about an hour.

More is on the way they say, so obviously not much work will get done here. We do have power right now, but I don’t expect it to hold out if we get hit again.

In the mean time check this out: Dual Faction Firepower, and make sure if you like it you give a good 5 stars, so they’ll let me write more.
