With the help of mine safety engineers, "Appalachian Magazine" reexamines the 42-year-old Buffalo Creek flood, memorializing the devastating tragedy, as well as exploring its causes and overall impact upon American society. Through numerous interviews with eyewitnesses and firsthand accounts, "Appalachian Magazine" pieces together a clear and concise chronicle of the worst flood in West Virginia’s history. “I couldn't hear, I couldn't see, I couldn't do anything. I stood there screaming and that's when my mother saw the house moving. My father grabbed me and my mother and my cousin came down there with us too, and my father made her get in the car...” In addition to featuring the Buffalo Creek flood, the July 2014 edition of "Appalachian Magazine" also includes several additional tales of the mountains, including: Jenny Wiley's Story of Perseverance, an entire section devoted to honoring the father's of our readers, the journal of a five day bike ride through the coalfields of southern West Virginia, The Real Story Behind West Virginia's Dinner Bells, and a handful of other articles all geared to people of the mountains!
