Red Cross Volunteers Assist Flood Victims in Morehead, Olive Hill


Crews from the American Red Cross were in Morehead, Olive Hill and Paintsville over the weekend helping flood victims with damage assessment and cleanup, and they’re going to have a presence in all three communities for some time.

That’s the word from the executive director of the Eastern Kentucky Chapter Joanna King.

“We will be continuing to be in every area that’s affected. Most of the volunteers that are out working right now are local volunteers, as well as we have a lot from other states and other counties that have come in to help.”

State and local officials say more than 500 homes were destroyed during the floods two weeks ago in Johnson and Rowan Counties. Four persons were also killed.
