Kingsport business owners begin flood clean up


The clean up process began in earnest in downtown Kingsport on Thursday following unprecedented flooding on Wednesday afternoon.

Kingsport City Manager, John Campbell, said city employees along with the Sullivan County Emergency Management Agency were still in the process of doing damage assessments across the city.

Campbell said when those reports are complete that information will then be passed on to the state level.

Campbell said since many business owners downtown did not have flood insurance there is a chance the Tennessee EMA will be able to help get them back on their feet.

Downtown business owner, Jorita Clayton, said despite thousands of dollars in damage her downtown neighbors have been coming together to help one another clean up and dry out.

The Downtown Kingsport Association is accepting donations to help downtown businesses recover.

Association marketing director, Chasity Carter, said they are also welcoming volunteers and asked that anyone interested contact their office.
