FEMA: 75 trucks from Maryland to deliver 1,387,500 liters of water to West Virginia region with contaminated water supply

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Seventy-five tractor trailers loaded with bottled water from FEMA are scheduled to arrive at the Air National Guard Armory in Charleston Friday afternoon for distribution to the areas impacted by Thursday’s chemical spill.

Guard spokesman Col. Mike Cadle said the water is traveling from a FEMA site in Maryland. He said a staging area was established at the Air Base Thursday night.

“We will receive that water from FEMA, off-load it into vehicles that will then take it out to distribution points in the affected counties and work with the local emergency services folks in those counties to distribute the water,” Cadle said.
