PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Millvale's cleanup effort continues after last week's flash flooding. Mayor Brian Sproales says there's a lot of work still ahead. 

"The outpouring of love and support from surrounding communities has been awesome with the donations. We can still use some cleaning supplies but the big part is we still need volunteers." 

Sproales stells the KDKA Radio Morning News there were up to 400 homes with muddy basements when the recovery effort started. That's dow to about 100.

"Our Community Center on Lincoln Avenue will be open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and we're still looking for donations." Things like non-perishable food, bottled water and cleaning kits are needed most.

People are asked to drop off any donations at the center during those hours.

The Salvation Army has helped by handing out hundreds of clean up and hygiene kits with basic supplies like bleach, buckets, rags and soap and has also provided meals.
