PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The cleanup continues for areas hit hard by the flash flooding last week.  

There will be a multi-agency resource center held Thursday at the Millvale Community Center from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. to help those in need.

Millvale Mayor Brian Spoales tells the KDKA Radio Morning News, “We are down to less than 50 homes that the North Hills Community Outreach is aware of for cleanup.”  But a lot of people still need help. 

Officials from groups like the Red Cross, Salvation Army, United Methodist Committee of Relief and others will be available with more long term flood relief.

Spoales says agencies are working to help residents replace basic items, “They are going to have a couple agencies there to discuss information on the possibility, just the possibility; I don’t know what their criteria is of appliance replacements.”

The center is open to residents in all of the surrounding areas who are in need of flood relief.

There will also be child care on site to help those parents that need to bring their children with them to the center so they aren't distracted while talking to the agencies.
