*Scott, I see you are from DuBois. My grandfather, George Harvey (of Penn State flyfishing fame) was from DuBois, but lived in State College most of his life. I have been to DuBois a number of times, since I grew up in PA and MD, but it's not the type of town I hear about much. I was pleasantly surprised to see it on your post! Good luck with your move!
... Forgot part two of the question.... Wayne County did have some flooding as a result of hurricane Floyd. Some of the areas that suffered the worst damage were bought out by FEMA and the flooded houses were removed. Parts of down town and another area called Marmac also had bad flooding. Also, I know the Seven Springs area had some homes that were damaged. If you Google "News Argus" (the local paper) you could probably read the old articles on line. If you look at homes that were built before the storm then obviously they were not to adversely impacted. Otherwise, you may want to look at topographical maps (court house) to gage the flood plains. Honestly though, most of the flooding in the area after Floyd was a direct result of water being diverted when it was getting to high in Raleigh. Raleigh had some flooding issues so they released all of their extra water down stream so the city would not flood. As a result the more rural areas got hit very quickly with all of the extra water when it had nowhere else to go. Considering the impact that it had, I'm pretty sure that Raleigh would have to look at other options if another bad hurricane hit.
I am not sure how quickly you are looking to move, but there are quite a few bank owned homes that the banks want OFF their books prior to the end of the year, which could get you some good equity.
Many times there are local community web sites, that might be able to get you a name or two of a local resident in that area who might be able to tell you what they like or don't like about the schools in the area.
