Six people were still missing Monday in West Virginia and one man was unaccounted-for in Kentucky. Near the hard-hit southern West Virginia city of Welch, emergency officials briefly evacuated about 25 residences in a mobile home park Monday because state inspectors believed a small reservoir in a nearby industrial park was in danger of failing. Residents were allowed to return home before noon, McDowell County officials said. In addition to more than 500 homes and businesses damaged or destroyed in the area, one elementary school in McDowell County was destroyed and 11 others were damaged, county school Superintendent Mark Manchin said Monday. "It's conceivable we may not get some of these students back this year," Manchin said by telephone from Iaeger High School, where 4 feet of water rushed into the school Thursday and left 4 inches of mud and muck in classrooms.
