State Park System - Storm Damage and Updates

This webpage was created as a public information resource for our visitors and employees about storms that occurred on June 29 and on July 1, 2012 across West Virginia.  Tropical Storm Sandy that began on October 29, 2012 is causing this page to return. This is not real time. This page is a snapshot at the date and time indicated on bottom of the  page.

A limited image gallery shows scenes at Audra State Park to illustrate damages from snow fall.

This webpage will remain in existence in the event other natural occurrences which result in an area needing information available for our visitors as well as our employees, area residents and general public.
