Two communities, West Point and Colesburg, in the E-town District were struck hard by the recent flooding. Working in conjunction with the American Red Cross the district Churches have collected and distributed over 63 gallons of bleach and 60 Flood Buckets to help those whose homes were struck by flood water.
In the West Point community over 50 homes had flood damage. Missy Williams, city clerk of West Point told us, "most of the home owners are self reliant and quickly went to work cleaning the mud and debris from their homes. The most requested item was bleach to disinfect and stop mold from forming." Missy continued, "two of the home owners needed outside help in their cleanup and a team from the Kentucky Baptist Association came and helped them with their cleanup efforts."
