CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - WorkForce West Virginia is getting federal money to hire about 200 temporary workers for recovery and cleanup efforts after recent severe storms and flooding.

U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced the funding from the Department of Labor on Tuesday. The state has been approved for up to $2 million, with $670,000 to be released initially.

Eligible dislocated workers will be hired to assist with cleanup, demolition, repair, renovation and reconstruction of destroyed public structures and lands, as well as for the delivery of humanitarian aid and safety assistance.
