Storm ravaged county to host a job & business fair

Magoffin County is just one place still trying to build back to what it once was.

Many buildings along the Mountain Parkway in Salyersville still sit torn apart and empty.

There are some signs of progress.

Some businesses have reopened and others are well on their way.

Many homes that were destroyed are also being rebuilt.

County officials say they are happy with the progress made so far.

“The people of Magoffin County are very resilient as my deputy judge said and we've really pulled together and I think you can see by looking out at what the damage was that we've done a tremendous amount of work,” Magoffin County Judge Executive Charles “Doc” Hardin said.

The county is hosting a job and business fair tomorrow at the health department to talk about long term recovery.
