White Sulphur Springs has transitioned out of relief mode and into recovery mode following last month's devastating flooding. That's according to the Greater Greenbrier County Long-Term Recovery Committee.

The group is determining what the needs are and who wants to help, then it will match the two together.

The group says thanks to churches and people donating time and money, Greenbrier County is doing big things.

"We are leading the state in recovery efforts," Kayla McCoy, Great Greenbrier Longterm Recovery Committee spokeswoman, said. "And I would attribute a large part of that to the committee and to the people involved with the committee who have been working tirelessly."

"They've lost their lifetimes and their memories and things it's been really difficult, but they are hardy people and we fight," Lifelong White Sulphur Springs Resident Urma Justice said.

The committee says there is nowhere to put any more donations. It says right now it just needs money.
