West Virginia resort offers shelter for Carolina residents


WHEELING, WV (AP)- A West Virginia resort is offering shelter for people who have had to leave their homes because of Hurricane Florence.


Oglebay Resort and Conference Center executive Herb Faulkenberry said people in West Virginia and other locations have also been through weather-related challenges. He said it’s only natural that the resort offer space to those who have left their homes in the wake of the hurricane.


The resort said it is offering complimentary accommodations through Sept. 20 to people affected by the hurricane with a North Carolina or South Carolina driver’s license and proof of residency.


Marketing Manager Lindsey McGlaughlin said those who want to take advantage of the offer should call (877) 436-1797 to reserve lodging, based on availability.
