After losing five family members in a deadly 1985 flood in West Virginia, the sound of heavy rains still brings Katina Cochran to tears.
«I don’t like the sound of heavy rain. It depresses me, I cry,» Cochran toldWAVY. «Because I know the next minute, you don’t have anything.»
When the West Virginia native who now lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia, saw the floods that were ravaging her home state once again – killing 23 and destroying hundreds of homes – she knew she needed to help.
