A Flood of Good Neighbors

Community bands together to recover from major flooding

 

by Amiee Jones - August 24, 2018

Our neighbors in Troy, PA recently experienced a surprising and significant flood. On Monday, August 13th, water levels raised rapidly and began to run through various areas of town, rushing past barriers into streets and buildings, and ultimately causing significant damage. An event like this is always shocking to a community, especially when home and building owners survey the effect that the waters have had on their property.

However, there was a light in these bleak circumstances that lifted morale for the whole town. After the waters receded a bit Monday evening, many businesses owners were met with the support and help of volunteers who came to pitch-in with the clean up. This movement continued throughout Tuesday, as well. Crowds of community members were seen throughout the center of town, shoveling mud, cleaning interiors, collecting trash and inventory, building back walls, and more.

The community response was so significant that First Citizens Community Bank was inspired to facilitate a special lunch for the volunteers. Pizzas from Vinnie’s Pizza, milkshakes from the Milky Way, and other supplies from local businesses were provided for the groups still working the day away.

The immediate and enthusiastic response to this flood helped to nip the damage in the bud (as best as possible), and lighten the workload for business, building, and home owners. Best of all, to see everyone join together during this time of need lifted town spirits, and served as a reminder of the power of community support!
