Recovery efforts are underway in some parts of West Virginia.

Other areas still need help.

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin met with the National Guard Wednesday and video-conferenced counties across the state to get updates from emergency officials.

Many places said the news is still bad especially in the eastern panhandle and mountain areas.

Officials said the state is doing everything it can to get help to the people who need it.

"There's still shelters up and running. Our primary focus right now is still going out with our health and wellness team to make sure people are taking care of, if they need water or food, that we're doing that as well," said Lt Col David Lester, public information officer.

Lester said the guard will start working with the Division of Highways and the Division of Forestry to remove damaged trees from roads.

FEMA has been staged at the 130th Airlift Wing in Charleston. It will distribute 3 1/2 million cases of water and meals throughout the state.
