Is destructive mountain mining spurring W. Va flooding?

I'm wondering if the massive, destructive flooding across West Virginia is related to the state's widespread forest clear-cutting and mountain top removal for coal extraction.

Previous reporting has made the connection - - here and here, for example.

Bullet dodged, Penokee Hills, neighbors, et al.

Well, your right about that awful mining bill, but the walkerites are their fearless leader are vindictive to the extreme. Since their BFF mining company can't safely and profitably mine up there in Wisconsin, WI GOP is going to make us pay with feces and urine from manure lagoons in our water.

These really are sick little monkeys, but by hook-or-crook they control the state now.
