CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Jim Justice has announced that West Virginia State Parks will be offering a 50% discount on all lodge rooms, cabins, and campsites to those seeking shelter from Hurricane Dorian.

“West Virginia stands ready to welcome anyone who may be in need of shelter as a result of Hurricane Dorian,” Gov.
