Help Floats Down the River

By  | 

The Mountain State is getting more help cleaning up after the flood.

More than 600 members of the West Virginia National Guard are doing similar cleanup work to that done after the fall flooding.

But unlike four months ago, this time the National Guard is using its own equipment instead of borrowing from other states.

State and federal emergency officials began evaluating flood damage Sunday in Hancock County and are working their way south.

The assessment will determine whether the state will apply for federal disaster aid.
