CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A few more meetings have been added to help West Virginia 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 the evening of Oct. 18 at Midland Trail High School in Hico.

Two more evening meetings will follow – one on Oct. 19 at the Gauley Bridge Community Center, and another Oct. 25 at Clay County High School Auditorium.

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