State Monies Will Soon Aid Flood Recovery Efforts
On this West Virginia Morning, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has signed a bill to provide $85 million in state funding to help pay for continued flood clean-up and recovery costs.
The $85 million accounts for 25 percent of the nearly $340 million in total damage caused by the June 23, 2016, flood that killed 23 people. The federal government will pay the rest of the cost.
