Description

A search for "Upper Falls, WV" returns: "Hamlet Upper Falls, Tornado, Lincoln, West Virginia, United States of America."

In fact, the Census Designated Place of Upper Falls, West Virginia, United States of America is located in Kanawha County, not Lincoln County. See http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic/f?p=gnispq:3:::NO::P3_FID:2585055

The former Tornado, WV CDP was replaced by the Upper Falls, WV CDP for the 2010 US Census. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tornado,_West_Virginia

OSM is a wiki - please check / correct the data before raise bug tickets.

If nominatim is incorrectly interpreting data in the OSM database please re-open with details of the osm id(s) that are being incorrectly presented.

OSM place_id=405347 relates to the hamlet (populated place) of Upper Falls, West Virginia, United States of America. The database incorrectly places Upper Falls within Tornado; it is not. It further places Upper Falls in Lincoln County; it is, in fact, in Kanawha County. The correct details should be: Upper Falls, Kanawha, West Virginia, United States of America.
