Marty cleans up following flash-flood devastation

Published 06/16/2010, The Daily Republic

MARTY — It looks like this small community was attacked. In a way, it was.
A wall of floodwater rushed through Marty on Saturday morning. It washed an SUV off a road and plunged its driver into 9 feet of water, ripped through homes and offices and left a devastating path of damage in its wake.
On Tuesday, the devastation was evident across this small, unincorporated town in Charles Mix County. Efforts were under way to pump murky, chocolatebrown water away from St. Paul Parish, a historic white church with an imposing steeple visible far from town.
