A winter storm event has impacted Mingo County and West Virginia in general for more than a week. The storms have cause power outages and road blockages. Because of the severity of the storm, Gov. Jim Justice ordered a state of emergency on Tuesday, Feb. 16, for four counties and a state of preparedness for the remainder of the state. During the storm Mingo County residents captured scenes around Mingo County.
