Millstone area residents continued clean-up efforts from last weeks flash flood.

A number of buildings received water, including the Stone Bar and Grill, the county's only tavern.

"We waded water to our knees, to the center of the road," said Marla Carpenter, who was bartending at The Stone when the bar began filling with water.

"Everybody moved their vehicles to the middle of the road. We just had to wait it out because there was water everywhere, all around us."

Not only did the unexpected flooding tear through local businesses and homes, it also hit the local Minnie Hamilton EMS Station.

EMS officials told a Charleston TV station that the building had to be completely gutted, with water also filling ambulances stationed there.

All of their supplies inside the station were also ruined, including a KED, which is used to extract people from cars, about $15,000 in radio equipment, and a cardiac monitor that also costs about $15,000, the report said.

The highway department spent more than a day clearing Rt. 16 and US 33-119.
