Operation Blessing Helps Flood Victims in Va.

Ad Feedback

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va -- Residents in Norfolk, Va. are cleaning up after a flash flood last week.

Torrential rains dumped more than seven inches in the area in just a few hours.

Several homes had several feet of water on the first floor.

And no one in this neighborhood has insurance.         

Residents tell the the Virginian-Pilot newspaper that the majority of help they are getting is from CBN's Operation Blessing.

Crews from Operation Blessing are cleaning up, ripping out carpeting, and tearing out rotting drywall.

"They said they heard about what had happened out here and they wanted to come out and see," Lorenza Hankins said. "He said because of the smell it's gonna get worse and he said I have four people to come out and move things around. It's a blessing. It's truly a blessing," she added.

"That's really where Operation Blessing can come in and bring the man power and basically help these families that don't know what to do make sure they can try to get back on their feet," said Dan Moore with Operation Blessing.

Operation Blessing said at least 30 homes were damaged from flooding.
