Hours after the rain had stopped... water still covered East Main Street in downtown Waynesboro. A county fire company captain said it was the worst flooding he's seen... worse that Floyd four years ago... even worse than Camille in 1969, because the water came up so fast this time. The storm knocked out power at several key intersections in the city. A power line snapped out in the county... along Howardsville Turnpike. A cow went to investigate the live wire, and she was electrocuted. There was lots of high water. Several county roads remain impassable.
