As tens of thousands of West Virginia struggle with no power, many are flocking to hotels to stay warm and dry. Many hotels in Kanawha County are either full or near capacity.
Angie Walls from Boone County came to the Best Western in Charleston to get a few rooms for her and her husband along with their three children and three grandchildren. She said she is used to dealing with losing power.
"It seems like whenever it rains or snows we lose power,” Walls said. “You just get used to it and do what's best for your family."
Walls hopes to only spend a night or two at the hotel. With the kids out of school, they plan to keep them entertained by going to the Clay Center. Trick or treat for the kids in Boone County will take place on Saturday.
