60 Moments: 2004 Tri-State Flooding

It took Army Humvees to rescue stranded south-siders in Huntington when the 4 Pole Creek couldn't handle what Hurricanes Frances and Ivan had to dish out in September 2004.

Back-to-back six-inch cloudbursts put an exclamation point to a very wet year.

The torrents of rain swamped roads from Boyd County, Kentucky to Holzer Medical Center along Jackson Pike in Gallia County, Ohio.

Landslides gobbled up homes and cars in Lincoln County, West Virginia. In time, all the water made its way into the main stem of the muddy Ohio River where Pomeroy was at ground zero for two Main Street floods.
