On June 23, 2016, a flood hit areas of Southern West resulting in 24 deaths. The flooding was the result of 8 to 10 inches of rain falling over a period of 12 hours. According to meteorologists at the National Weather Service, the rainfall qualified as a 1,000 year event for parts of Fayette, Nicholas, and Greenbrier Counties. 

In the wake of the floods, West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency for 44 of the state’s 55 counties. Flood relief and federal aid came to West Virginia to help those in need and that’s why one young boy, Daishon Kelly, wrote this book—so he could help, too.
