CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — Two weeks after flash floods took hold of southern West Virginia, killing at least 23 people and destroying over 1,000 homes, victims still need plenty of supplies, say disaster experts.
“We’re still mucking out homes and probably will do that for the next month or longer,” said Jenny Gannaway, chairman of the West Virginia Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster. “We’re providing food, shelter and getting supplies out to counties so they can be supplied to families as needed.
“We have enough cleaning supplies at this point, but still need sand, dehumidifiers, totes, wheelbarrows, first aid kits, 40-gallon trash cans, tarps, rakes, towels and wash cloths and Gatorade.”
People can drop off items or mail them to the VOAD warehouse at 2700 East Dupont Avenue, Belle, WV, 25015.
