He said they included “everything from vehicles to campers to boats to homes knocked off the foundation and numerous propane tanks floating down the river.” It was difficult to assess damage, he said, partly because some areas were inaccessible and partly because internet and cellphone service is out throughout the county.Sgt. P.J. Cochran, of the Summers County Sheriff’s Department, said two firefighters had to be rescued after their raft flipped at about 2:30 a.m. Friday.Roger Bryant, director of the Logan County Office of Emergency Management, said Logan County escaped damage but emergency responders from the county assisted Clay County, which was hit hard.
