"On August 26, 1941, a very severe storm front when through Wyoming County. Fifteen year old James Elwood Ritchie from Oceana was on his bicycle heading home when the storm hit. He was on the Toney Fork Road when he was caught in the rain. He sheltered under a tree that was at the edge of the creek. Lightning hit the tree, breaking a huge limb that in turn hit young James. The force of the limb knocked James into the nearby creek where he drowned.
