By Alex Thomas
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) announced Thursday new funding from FEMA that will go toward flood recovery efforts in Nicholas County.

The almost $2 million grant will be used by the Nicholas County School District.

The funds will be used to pay for temporary facilities to replace those destroyed or damaged in the June 2016 flood.
