On this West Virginia Morning, Ashton Marra brings us a flood recovery update after Governor Earl Ray Tomblin visited two of the hardest hit communities – Rainelle and Clendenin.

Glynis Board speaks with state health officials who say the volume of water in the flood has likely diluted the most toxic substances.

And Roxy Todd shares the story of how local volunteers saved the lives of two Rainelle residents.
