West Virginia (DR 4273)
Flood, Landslide, Severe Storm - West Virginia
A declaration in three counties for severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides brought WSP USA Inspection Services to West Virginia on June 26, 2016. Within the next five days, nine counties were added to the declaration. Access to some communities was impacted as residents and rescue workers were given wristbands to gain access. FEMA shared a copy of the inspector badge to assist with entry to these heavily damaged areas. Road closures, detours, bad weather, new 911 address change and difficult verifications were challenges our inspectors faced.
