CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia county school board has landed a $1.5 million federal grant for flood recovery efforts.

On Friday, U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced the grant for the Kanawha County Board of Education.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency grant will help the board address flood-related issues in Kanawha County schools.

Five schools across the state, including two in Kanawha County, are being rebuilt because of extensive flood damage.

The June 23 floods killed 23 people and devastated homes, businesses and infrastructure.
