On the Front Lines of Flood Recovery

Chris Walters

If you think there’s no longer a need for volunteers or donations for flood victims – state Senator Chris Walters wants to set you straight.

Walters represents the flood-damaged communities of Clendenin and Elkview. Shortly after the flood, he helped set up a staging area for volunteers and donations.

A volunteer from Toyota removes a flood-damaged American flag after a devastating flood in Clendenin, W.Va.

Walters spoke recently with Rick Wilson and Scott Finn for our podcast, The Front Porch. He tells us what he’s seen – and why help is still needed.

If you want to help, Walters says he can be reached via his Facebook page.

Walters says volunteers are needed to help clean up dozens of homes in the Clendenin area. Just show up at the Clendenin Foodfair parking lot.
