Come to Fizzy’s and meet young author Daishon Kelly as he reads from and autographs his new book Natural Flood Disaster in Southern West Virginia 2016. He is passionate about writing and wrote his first book when he was only five. Daishon responded passionately when he saw the devastation caused by the June floods in Southern West Virginia. He knew he wanted to help after loosing his own father last year, he knew how families felt who were torn apart and wanted to give hope to those who lost everything. He wanted to write a book to offer encouragement and remind everyone that we can all come together and pick up the pieces no matter how difficult it may be.

On June 23, 2016, a flood ravaged many areas of Southern West Virginia. The flooding was the result of 8 to 10 inches of rain falling over a period of 12 hours. According to meteorologists at the National Weather Service, the rainfall qualified as a 1,000 year event for parts of Fayette, Nicholas, and Greenbrier Counties. In the wake of the floods, West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency for 44 of the state’s 55 counties. Flood relief and federal aid came to West Virginia to help those in need. That’s why Daishon, wrote this book—Natural Flood Disaster in Southern West Virginia 2016, so he could help, too.

Daishon Kelly was born and raised in Morgantown, WV with his mother, Melanie Kelly and his sister, Kaylese. Daishon is raising money for flood relief in Southern West Virginia by donating money from sales of his book. There has been an outpouring of support and Daishon is in the forefront–helping others to recover from this terrible disaster.
