CHARLESTON - D.A. Gohil's family is still rebuilding its convenience store business in Nicholas County, a year after Superstorm Sandy buried parts of West Virginia in wet, heavy snow that collapsed roofs and pulled down power lines.

The thick snow from the freakish fall storm was too much for the roofs of two of his family's stores to sustain. Both stores - one in Summersville, the other in Craigsville - were destroyed when the roofs crashed down.

Damage totaled about $2.4 million, and only a fifth of the loss was covered by insurance.
==========
2.4 million for those 2 building? LMAO Having seen both stores prior to the storm Ihave to say that figure is beyond ludicrous. Saying they were worth a tenth of 2.4 million(240K) is a stretch.

There were several other structures damaged in Nicholas County. Including Foodland of Craigsville and residential and personal property throughout the area.
