BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

One man from Louisiana is headed out to help the victims of the West Virginia flooding. 

Captain Brett Meredith, a commander of the Baton Rouge Salvation Army, is headed up to West Virginia after flood waters killed 23 people and damaged thousands of buildings. 

"I'm going to be going down to help with the public information to make sure we get the message out so that folks understand what there is to support for the Salvation Army in that region," Meredith said. 

Flood waters raged through the Mountain State last week. One town lost 99 percent of its businesses and 80 percent of its homes. 

Many organizations like the Salvation Army have set up ways to donate to the victims of the flooding.
