SALT volunteers recognized for recovery efforts


SCHOHARIE, N.Y. -- Storms Irene and Lee caused devastating flooding to much of our region, and in the weeks and months that followed, volunteers pulled together in many places to do what they could.

In Schoharie County a group known as Schoharie Area Long Term, or SALT, formed to help, and volunteers got a very big thank you on Tuesday.

"SALT is simply the umbrella recovery organization for the village of Schoharie coordinating all of the volunteer efforts for the thousands and thousands of people that do come in, will come in , have come in to help repair our community," said John Borst.

Organizers say the majority of those residents flooded out who want to be back in their homes are, but more work needs to be done.
