Charleston, WV (AP) -- Gov. Joe Manchin is heading back into the southern West Virginia coalfields to assess the damage caused by flooding this past weekend.
Heavy rainfall late Friday and early Saturday turned streams into raging waterways that swept into homes, knocked out power and ripped out small bridges.
No injuries have been reported, but officials say flooding destroyed at least 300 buildings in Mingo County and damaged about 100 in Wyoming County.
Roads in Mercer, McDowell and Raleigh Counties also were damaged.
Several roads remained impassable Monday morning.
Manchin toured the area Sunday after calling up another 300 national guards troops to help with the clean up effort.
The Governor planned to return the region Monday.
