CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Kanawha County will provide free appraisals of property damaged by a landslide at Yeager Airport.

Yeager says the County Commission has hired Jay Goldman and Associates to conduct the appraisals. Settlement offers will be made to residents based on the appraisals.

Settlement offers could include a property’s full purchase price or funds for repairs.

Some properties are eligible for purchase by the Federal Aviation Administration. These properties are located in the runway protection zone.

An emergency overrun area near the end of the airport’s main runway partially collapsed in a landslide on March 12. The landslide took out a church, an unoccupied home and power lines and forced residents out of a few dozen homes.
