The need is overwhelming for people in flood- ravaged West Virginia.

In this week's Mornin' Newsmakers, WDBJ7 talked with Lee Clark from Roanoke's chapter of the American Red Cross about the best ways to help the flood victims.

Clark says along with monetary donations and contributions of items like bottled water, food and cleaning supplies, volunteers are badly needed.

He says the Red Cross will train people to help. Among the skills needed, people with a medical background, case workers and truck drivers.
