It was 39 years ago today that Nelson County was hit by devastating Hurricane Camille. Over a hundred people lost their lives statewide, dozens here in Nelson, in the category 5 hurricane that forever changed Nelson County. Yesterday, Peter Agelasto and others unveiled a historic marker just off Route 151 South of Spruce Creek on the banks of the Rockfish River near Elk Hill. (see accompanying story in current August issue of NCL page 41) It was at that very spot near the Rockfish River Bridge that Ed Ewing and his wife were killed in the raging flood waters coming down from the mountains. The marker is in addition to others in the county memorializing the event.
We certainly won’t see anything like Camille in our area today, and it still looks like Fay is not going to affect our weather. The present thinking is high pressure will keep the storm from making into Virginia, rather pushing it to our south and west. We’ll keep you posted if she heads this way.
Look for temperatures to moderate a bit for the rest of the week leaving behind the 90’s we’ve seen for the past two to three days. Chances for rain (excluding Fay if she moved this way) will reappear around Monday.
