rainelle flooding

Rainelle is located in a “bowl” through which the Meadow River drains storm runoff from Alta Mountain and most of western Greenbrier County. Sewell Creek, Little Sewell Creek, Boggs Creek and Wolfpen Creek all cross Rainelle before draining into the river. An informational meeting dealing with potential approaches to flood control is scheduled at the Rainelle Town Hall on Oct. 28 at 6 p.m.
