W.Va. native Paisley tours damage

Brad Paisley said he’s heartbroken by the destruction from deadly flooding in his home state of West Virginia.

On Thursday, the singer visited flood-ravaged Clendenin, a town of 1,200 people ravaged by the swollen Elk River last week. Bridges were destroyed and homes were ripped from their foundations. Six people in Kanawha (KUH-naw) County died and 23 were killed statewide.

The native of Glen Dale is hoping to raise $1 million for flood-recovery efforts and has given $100,000 of his own money toward that cause.
