Some West Virginia residents whose homes were destroyed by last summer’s floods are getting new places to live.

The Department of Education says 12 career and technical centers across the state have built small homes for families whose lives were torn apart.

A presentation ceremony is set in Charleston on Tuesday. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin will be joined at the ceremony by state schools Superintendent Michael Martirano and Kathy D’Antoni, the Department of Education’s chief officer of career and technical education.

The June 23 floods killed 23 people and destroyed or damaged thousands of homes, businesses, schools and infrastructure.
