TUESDAY - The WV National Guard has sent three trucks with crews to the county to cruise the rural backroads, do well being checks and deliver water, according to OES/011 Director Kathy Wood.

While crews are in all sections of the county and service is being retored to households, the outages are being reduced by the hour.

Many residents do not have phone service.

Trees and lines continue to fall into roadways Tuesday.

Availability of drinking water is a problem for many Calhoun households without electric, problems pumping water from wells.

Wood said a large truckload of bottled water has been received at Calhoun Control 911 Center about noon today, and the water is being distributed to the Upper West Fork VFD and Grantsville VFD stations and at Calhoun Control (Mt. Zion) and should be available about 2:30 p.m.

Dumpsters are being secured for spoiled food, said Wood, and will be located at the Grantsville town parking lot and at the Upper West Fork Park.

"Please respect the dumpsters are for spoiled food," when they arrive, she said.
