JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- One year after floodwaters destroyed her home of 70 years, 89-year-old Annabelle King of Cash Hollow was recently presented the keys to a newly constructed house.
It's one of 22 new homes built through the Washington County New Build project launched by Johnson City-based Appalachia Service Project in response to the flood of Aug. 5, 2012.
Partnering with Washington County, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, the Small Business Administration, many community partners and hundreds of volunteer youth groups from churches around the country, ASP has replaced nearly two dozen homes destroyed by last year's flood and repaired many others that were damaged.
And it was all done at no cost to the homeowners.
