WVU Students Plan Flood Cleanup Efforts in Rainelle


West Virginia University's Student Government Association is heading to southern West Virginia for flood cleanup efforts.

As part of its annual leadership retreat, the SGA plans to travel to Rainelle on Monday and Tuesday to lead multiple volunteer groups.

WVU SGA president Julie Merow says the retreat is an important time for planning, team building and gearing up for the school year.

Some of the worst destruction from the late June floods occurred in Rainelle. Twenty-three people died in the floods statewide, including 15 in Greenbrier County.
