Joe Hallock and his neighbors on Country Club Road have seen an invasion of salamanders, a group of which is called a congress. A state biologist said they aren’t unusual to find in Campbell County, but that the wet summer has encouraged them to reproduce and spread out.

Joe Hallock and his family were at home off Country Club Road last weekend when they walked outside and were greeted by something either out of a horror film or science project, depending on your point of view.

More than 100 slender salamanders with moist, smooth skin and long tails slithered their way across their front and back decks.
