LISTEN: Thoughts from Survivors of 2016 Flood

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, we hear from survivors of the flooding that devastated southeastern West Virginia.

While the Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing aid, Kara Lofton reports most of the rescues, cleanup, and support so far has been provided by the local communities.

Roxy Todd brings us the story of one woman who lost almost everything in the high water, and Jessica Lilly introduces us to a survivor who says this wasn’t her first flood, and she’ll pull through this.
