Flooding recovery still months away

MEDWAY, Ohio (WDTN) — Clark County formed a new committee on Thursday to help families affected by flooding in May in Clark County.

The county announced the long-term recovery committee, which will be operational starting Friday.

On May 21, high water forced more than 100 people of Laynecrest manor — and the surrounding area — from their homes. Churches, red cross and other groups have been helping in the interim, but Clark County officials said  there was no group to help organize the long-term recovery and ongoing needs of the families.

Residents who need to connect with the new committee can call Salvation Army or the new committee at937-322-1400.

Commissioners also said Thursday the long-term clean up in Clark County from the May flooding could take another 4 to 6 months.
