Ohio Campground Recovering from Flood

Reuben Kent and Keith Ortman spent the past week undoing about seven hours of damage. They’re still not finished.

Floods at the Huron River Valley Resort near Huron, Ohio, knocked over site meters and scattered stone across 52 acres, leaving piles that resembled snowdrifts, the Sandusky Gazette reported.

Several feet of raging waters swept away some of their asphalt driveway and tons of stone they’d just brought in.

Although the campground is closed for the season, about 10 people live there year-round.

Kent and Ortman, the two co-owners, have flood insurance for the property they’ve managed since 2009, but they expect they’ll still have to shell out at least $5,000 to repair what isn’t covered.
