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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

These are just a few of the disasters that have occurred in West Virginia’s history. Let’s hope that the saddest parts of our story are behind us and let’s never forget those who have lost their lives.
