Martin is on the forks of Beaver Creek.
Martin had its heyday when the nearby coalfields prospered. However, constant flooding forced most people to move.

A federal project calls for the city to be rebuilt on higher ground, beyond the flood plain.

Quotes:
A town that floods every year starts to look tired after a while. People get fed up and quit painting their houses. They get a little slower about replacing the buckled linoleum in the kitchen, because why spend money on something that will get ruined again come spring? Garbage in the treetops is another giveaway.
