  West Virginia 1000 Year Flood

The National Weather Service called the June 2016 flooding in southern West Virginia an exceptional meteorological event and a one in a thousand-year flood.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting reporters fanned out throughout southern West Virginia to assess the damage and examine recovery efforts. How can and should these already struggling communities rebuild? Was the state as prepared as it should have been? How do we help our children move forward through the trauma?

Tune into a one hour TV special from the same storytellers that bring you the Inside Appalachia Radio Podcast. In this program residents share their stories of loss, resilience, and determination to move forward. It concludes with a round table with WVPB reporters.
