Flood victims are filing a lawsuit against coal companies

More than one hundred people are filing a lawsuit in the Harless Creek area of Pike County due to flood damage.

Attorney Ned Pillersdorf says the suit was filed against two coal companies, Cambrian Coal and AEP Coal.

Many believe they are responsible for the destructive flooding in the community.

The lawsuit comes after a meeting Pillersdorf recently held with residents.
