A release from the Wise County Emergency Management:
Wise County would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped residents with repairs and snow removal. Wise County is continuing damage assessments for reporting to the State of Virginia. Wise County residents will not be receiving monetary disbursements as part of this reporting.
Social Services is working with United Way as well as other volunteer agencies and will be taking applications for home repairs to living areas only as a result of the recent snow/flood event. Residents may request assistance by calling Social Services at 276-328-8056. Applications will be taken until March 20th, 2015.
Each situation will be assessed and there is no guarantee that assistance will be given. Due to the high volume of these reports it will take some time to get to each assessment and repair.
