Several more meetings are coming up to help homeowners get grants to reduce risks during future disasters in flood-ravaged areas.

The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management says a meeting about the federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program will take place Wednesday evening at Alumni Hall in Richwood.

Two more evening meetings will follow — one on Oct. 3 at Workers United Local 863 in White Sulphur Springs, and a second on Oct. 4 at Rainelle Elementary.

The June 23 floods killed 23 and destroyed homes, businesses and infrastructure.
