10 More of the Most Horrifying Disasters That Ever Happened In West Virginia

West Virginians are no strangers to tragedy. The coal mines, while they brought us jobs and prosperity earlier in our history, also were the sources of many disasters and the loss of many lives. We could fill a whole list with only coal mining disasters, so this is not a definitive list.  We already brought you a list of seven disasters that shook the Mountain State; here are 10 more.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
