The water has gone down but the need for volunteers to clean up damaged homes remains high in a south-central Missouri county swamped by last month’s floods.
The Pulaski County town of Waynesville was among the hardest hit amid several days of heavy rain in early August.
Isabel Lambert is the volunteer coordinator for the county’s Community Organizations Active in Disaster, or COAD. COADs are public-private partnerships that respond to disasters.
Lambert said Thursday that more than 230 homes in the Waynesville still have mold, ruined drywall and other problems. She’s seeking volunteers to gather at 9 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday for the next two weeks at Waynesville City Park to help with cleanup.
