After the enormous flooding devastated many towns in Greene County a year ago, the "Project Hope" group formed for crisis counseling and mental health support for those affected by the floods. Next week marks the one-year anniversary of the storm, and representatives Lynn Byrne, Phil Jackson, and Barbara Abbate-Sturman spoke with WGXC's Peter Krug and Tom Roe on the "WGXC Afternoon Show" Tue., Aug. 21. They said that the stress of the one-year anniversary may be disruptive for some folks in the coming weeks. Click here to hear the entire interview (46:00).
