Much of my family hails from Nelson County - the McGanns, Campbells, and Coffeys. I was 11 years old when Hurricane Camille tore through Virginia 41 years ago today. Nelson was the worst hit. Some areas of the county recorded 31 inches of rain. The local Sheriff said that the rain was falling so hard the he could not breathe without sheltering his nose with his hand. Nelson's deaths totaled more than 1% of the county's population. Some bodies were never found. The story would make a great movie.
