A free medical clinic for West Virginia flood victims and others in need is set for this weekend in Kanawha County.

The clinic will be held Saturday and Sunday at Elkview Middle School. Services will be offered beginning at 6 a.m. each day.

It is being hosted by Charleston-based West Virginia Health Right, which provides free medical, dental and vision health services. Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit group based in Rockford, Tennessee, will run the clinic.

Organizers say the school’s parking lot will open at midnight each day and tickets will be distributed beginning at 3 a.m. All individuals with tickets will be served.

Up to 500 volunteers are expected to assist at the clinic.
