New Report Shows Coal Utility Challenges During Christmas Holiday, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, coal’s supporters have bragged about the performance of the fossil fuel during the deep freeze over Christmas weekend. But as Curtis Tate reports, not all coal units were available to help, even in West Virginia. That’s according to a new report from Standard & Poor’s.

Also, in this show, WMMT reporter Katie Myers covered last year’s floods in eastern Kentucky. Then she helped guide British reporter Philip Reevell as he worked on a documentary for the BBC. Inside Appalachia host Mason Adams talked with both about covering the floods and being part of the story.
