  • More than 200 homes were damaged during the August flood in Pulaski County. Despite this, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has denied individual assistance to private homeowners in the area.
    Pulaski County COAD ( Community Organization Active in Disaster) is serving as the central hub for volunteer coordination in the area, to help those whose homes have been destroyed or damaged.
    Pulaski County Emergency Management has reported that 1,188 volunteers have spent 7,648.5 hours helping with flood recovery, but much more help is still needed.
    COAD will be meeting next week at the following dates to help with cleanup efforts:
    Saturday, Sept. 14 - Meeting at 9 am, Waynesville City Park
    Wednesday, Sept. 18 - Meeting at 9 am, Waynesville City Park
    Thursday, Sept. 19 - Meeting at 9 am, Waynesville City Park
    Friday, Sept. 20 - Meeting at 9 am, Waynesville City Park
    Saturday, Sept. 21 - Meeting at 9 am, Waynesville City Park


    The week of the 22nd, COAD will have teams going out every day.
    COAD is looking to get a minimum of 3 work crews of 10 people in each team.
