Mess lingers

Associated Press

— CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s state parks are still feeling the effects from the June derecho and Superstorm Sandy.

Chief of parks Kenneth Calinger tells The Exponent Telgram that the two storms did at least $2 million worth of damage to the park system.

Calinger says revenues are down $1.2 million due to the damage and the lingering effect of people traveling less.

Downed trees are still a problem.
