Hope Mills Gets Financial Help For Flood Damage

Posted August 8, 2003 4:54 a.m. EDT

— One Cumberland County town soaked by flooding around Memorial Day will get some much needed financial help.

This week, the Council of State approved nearly $5 million in relief money for Hope Mills.

The state money will help pay to repair a dam, a bridge and roads.

The disaster relief, however, will not go to homeowners.
