There was a story of notable significance in Sunday’s Richmond Times Dispatch that you must read. It highlights the 40th anniversary of Camile’s devastating impact on Virginia.
The tropical system, although weakening as it crossed Western Virginia during that third week of August, 1969, will be sorrowfully remembered for the tragic results of massive flash flooding. Over one hundred people died when thirty inches of rain fell during just a few hours over Nelson County, unleashing torrents of flood waters and landslides.
Folks who were here then remember. We all need to remember.
