Description

Just 7 weeks after a devastating flood ravaged dozens of West Virginia communities in 1985, killing more than 40 people, Senator Ted Kennedy, on his own, visited Rowlesburg and Albright, WV to comfort residents. He initiated the visit. He cited his family's ties to West Virginia, including the fact that son Patrick had not long ago rafted down the Cheat River, one of the rivers that flooded and swept away homes and businesses.
