Historic Flooding In W.Va. And Federal Grant Bolsters Agriculture Innovation In KY, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the historic flooding in central and southern West Virginia washed away houses, vehicles and caused damage to roads and homes in the area. Briana Heaney has the story.

Also, in this show, a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture is going to support efforts from eastern Kentucky’s Mt. Folly Farm to help innovate agriculture nationwide. As Shepherd Snyder reports, the money is going to help support a regional farming workforce, promote climate-friendly practices, and promote tourism.
